      Verdict

      Sbraase went close at Chelmsford last time but is hard to catch right and VIVRE POUR VIVRE makes more appeal. Ed Dunlop’s charge found the step up to Class 2 company beyond him last time but had landed a double before that and this extra distance is expected to bring further improvement. Nigel has a similar profile to the selection though has already won over 1m4f at Brighton while Mijhaar is not out of this dropping down class. Cape Of Glory is also capable on his day but not the most predictable.
