Verdict

Invincible Ridge is best over 5f nowadays and though Masamah won over 7f here last month he has been well beaten since. ELUSIVITY won at Southwell on his penultimate start and was successful in a claimer here last year when beating Summerinthecity, who has his first outing since - Conor Dore’s charge may prove good enough. Masarzain has a chance at the weights but arrives in woeful form and the rest are even harder to fancy.
