Race Verdict

A fiercely competitive renewal can go the way of ARAB LEAGUE. Having justified cramped odds of 2-9 in a novice event at Taunton two starts ago, David Pipe's seven-year-old got within half a length of Gibb River in a good Sandown handicap last month and, while up another 4lb in the ratings for that, he appears to have built a sound relationship with 10lb claimer Frank Hayes. Lifestyle must shoulder top weight but it was hard not to be impressed with the mare's Aintree victory, while Saphir River also ran well at the Grand National meeting. Ubi Ace struggled at Cheltenham and Aintree but the return to a softer surface should play to his strengths.

Selection: Arab League        Danger: Lifestyle        Alternative: Saphir River
