Verdict

Warren Greatrex's prolific stayer BAILARICO has risen 13lb since his win at Chepstow on his stable bow, but it appears there is much more in the locker, so the Dubawi gelding can land the four-timer here to remain unbeaten since joining the Uplands handler. Shan Dun Na Ngall, who was seventh behind the selection when they met at Yarmouth, offered encouragement when third at Chelmsford last time and could represent some each-way value, with the most likely dangers being Wetherby third Street Jester and Threediamondrings, who was second here over this trip on the all-weather course last time.

Verdict

BAILARICO completed the hat-trick at Nottingham 3 weeks ago, and his running style has masked his superiority in the process, so the 4-timer is on back over 2m. Mizen Master is well handicapped on his hurdles form and is offered as second choice.
