SHOTOFWINE arrives here just 7lb higher than when successful at Market Rasen last December and he was not disgraced, considering it was his first run in three months, when third at Newcastle recently. Prince Mahler won back-to-back races in April but does have to bounce back from a moderate effort on his last appearance. The likes of Oscar Jane and Monte Wildhorn should be in the mix for the minor places.
OSCAR JANE could be coming back to the boil judged on her recent effort Southwell and, with this step back up in trip a plus, the 10-y-o gets the nod. Shotofwine performed well enough at Newcastle last time to make him of strong interest here and Monte Wildhorn also merits respect.
