Race Verdict

Nippy Nikki is better than her latest run suggests and must be given claims on her runner-up finish over 1m4f on her penultimate outing. Dunaskin knows what is required round here and has slipped to a fair mark, but a chance is taken on JONNIE SKULL, who takes a marked step up in trip. A three-time winner over 7f here, the Phil McEntee-trained six-year-old has hinted further would suit when running over that trip recently and he has won off higher marks in the past.

Selection: Jonnie Skull        Danger: Nippy Nikki        Alternative: Dunaskin
