    In depth

    Verdict

    Adamaris travels over from Ireland with every chance on his recent form over a mile at Dundalk while Dark Phoenix has been raised 3lb for winning over the same trip at Kempton. Nikolayeva is another upped in distance along with the handicap debutants Mabre and Good Try but another chance goes to HALFACROWN. He lost a shoe when disappointing over track and trip last week but had placed here before that with Arabescato and Never Said Nothing behind and may prove good enough in an open contest.
