Verdict

KAVORA was only denied by a head when finishing second over 7f here on Saturday, for which she is due to go up 1lb so she's well in at these weights and is taken to go one better this evening. Highwayman has run well in defeat a couple of times in recent months and he could make the frame once again, while Silk Mill Blue has won twice here in his last four starts and he is an obvious threat to the selection.

Verdict

THECORNISHBARRON performed below market expectations on debut for Brian Ellison at Wolverhampton and is now 0-20 on the AW, and 1-35 overall. However, he's lurking on a dangerous mark and is worth chancing in a handicap bigger on quantity than quality. Kavora went close here recently and should be in the thick of things once again, while Silk Mill Blue, a C&D winner last time, also merits respect.
