Race Verdict

Fugitive Motel struggled in handicap company last time, suggesting the assessor has him too high, but this drop in grade may help, while Annie Walker won on her only start in plating company last season so may fare better than when fourth at Catterick. Preference, though, is for HOMEWARD STRUT, whose hat-trick bid at Lingfield came unstuck when second to Kickingthelill before he went close over C&D on Saturday. His previous two wins both came over this C&D, though, so he could prove much tougher to stop here.

Selection: Homeward Strut        Danger: Fugitive Motel        Alternative: Annie Walker
