Verdict

Magic City was a surprise winner of this a year ago from 6lb higher and though not running well these races have a habit of producing repeat winners. Sir Roderic, who was 4l third a year ago, is in good shape having won at Chepstow and he'll get a good ride from Patrick Millman. RIGHT ACTION beat Saluti narrowly off levels at Doncaster in March and though the latter will be ridden by Simon Walker the winner has a 5lb claimer on board which should swing things his way again. Muraahin has only had three starts and changed stables.
