Verdict

Jon Ess had been knocking on the door before getting back to winning ways when dropped back down to 7f at the track at the start of the month. He has to be respected but both his wins have come over 7f so there is an argument that he may prove vulnerable here. Preference, therefore, goes to RECKLESS LAD as he has won two of his last three starts and may have more to come. Others to consider include the class-dropping Another Story and Red Avenger.

Verdict

It could be worth chancing AUSSIE VALENTINE, who goes well fresh and has slipped to a career-low mark starting out for this yard. Last-time-out winners Jon Ess and Reckless Lad head the dangers.
