Race Verdict

It could pay to side with COTTAM DONNY in an open-looking handicap. He was far from disgraced when third over an extended 1m2f at Doncaster last month (fourth has won since) and that first start since October will have blown any cobwebs away. Last year's scorer Tribal Myth has definite claims returning to the scene of his four career wins and was only 3 3/4-lengths behind the selection in that Doncaster race latest, while Sharp Sovereign and Kodicil make up the shortlist.

Selection: Cottam Donny        Danger: Tribal Myth        Alternative: Sharp Sovereign
