      Verdict

      COPPER KNIGHT has won four times around here including this in 2019 and is now on his lowest-ever mark despite a good run at Chester. He won't mind some cut in the ground and can gain his fifth success on the course. Stable companion Count D'Orsay finished just in front of him at Chester but the selection can reverse the form on his favourite track. Autumn Flight completed a Chelmsford double last month and has continued to go well off his raised mark while Kind Review has won three times at Newcastle since February. Muscika won twice here last summer and has to be respected along with Jawwaal, who suffered in the weights after landing a Class 2 handicap at Ascot but has come down a couple of pounds.
