Verdict

The preference is for BROKEN SPEAR, who bolted up in a similar race at Thirsk last week. Despite having to carry a 6lb penalty today, he is still 4lb well in and his rider's valuable 7lb allowance should also help. Implicit has been a model of consistency so far in her career and the daughter of Kodiac has won her last two starts well. Cococabala and Showu both need to improve to win but they have minor claims.

Verdict

BROKEN SPEAR left previous efforts well behind when bolting up on nursery debut in this headgear at Thirsk last week and has obvious claims under a penalty. Showu was a good second on her handicap bow at Sandown and is feared most ahead of the other penalised winner Implicit.
