Verdict

General Brook made all over this trip at Chepstow last time and has every chance of completing a hat-trick, for all he's now 6lb higher in the ratings. Narrow preference, however, is for LIGHT OF AIR, who was touched off by a neck over 1m2f at Sandown last time out but is expected to go one better, off 1lb higher, now stepping back up in trip. Eight-time course winner Roy Rocket cannot be left out of calculations either.

Verdict

LIGHT OF AIR has refound some form on his last 2 outings and is taken to strike from a mark 4 lb lower than when successful over C&D last year. Poetic Steps posted another decent effort when second at Ripon on Monday and gets the nod for the forecast spot ahead of course-specialist Roy Rocket.
