Verdict

Canadian Danehill went very close over C&D last time and has to come into the reckoning on that form, while Instructress will be thereabouts if reproducing her close-up third at Kempton earlier this month. Amy Ryan's claim allows Wotatomboy to race off the same mark as when successful at Brighton last month and My Love Fajer has the past form to figure. However, a chance is taken that a return to the Polytrack can rejuvenate FEAR NOTHING as he won off a much higher mark at Lingfield last season and is fresh from lay-off.
