Race Verdict

It could pay to side with the hat-trick seeking DELGANY GUNNER. He has looked a rejuvenated character since fitted with cheekpieces (worn again today) and won with enough in hand at Fontwell last time to suggest that he can defy a further 7lb rise in the ratings. Cardigan Island is entitled to strip fitter for his second at Ffos Las 42 days ago (first start since November) and has definite claims, while Plumpton scorer Absolute Shambles is in with a shout from the bottom end of these weights.

Selection: Delgany Gunner        Danger: Cardigan Island        Alternative: Absolute Shambles
