Verdict

CONKERING HERO notched up a hat-trick when successful over course and distance last time and appears hard to oppose under a 6lb penalty. He had Cry Wolf three and a half lengths adrift that day and Alexandra Dunn's gelding may get closer this time on revised terms. Scrafton is another to have denied the aforementioned rival when they met over shorter in April and he is entitled to get involved as well.

Verdict

CONKERING HERO was full value for his win here last week, his third in a row, and looks set for further success. Gravity Wave is the one for the forecast.
