Verdict

Spirit of Coniston, Mickleberry and Briery Lane are the three to focus on in the finale and the vote is given to Spirit Of Coniston. The selection has taken a hike in the weights but the manner of his most recent success at Catterick suggests that it won't be enough to stop him. He goes well here and he can overcome a poor draw to score. Mickleberry is a course and distance winner and she overcame trouble to score over this course and distance last time. However, this race is tougher and she will have to overcome stall to win. Briery Lane ran well in a competitive handicap at Bath last time when third behind Hawridge Miss but the form of the stable is a big worry at present. Thoughtsofstardom is a course and distance winner with a good draw and he can go well at a price, but for the winner we will stick with Spirit of Coniston.
