Verdict

Touchdown Banwell finished behind Mountain On Fire when they met over track and trip last time, which was a reversal of the form of their meeting over a mile. This trip may suit Mountain On Fire more, but he was behind DRIVE ON BY over a route in December and the selection has followed that up with a near miss over 5f last time.

Verdict

Judge Carr has been running well in more valuable races, while Nin's Thermometer was outclassed in an allowance contest last time but is a threat back in this grade. GATO PIMIENTO gets the vote, though, as he was beaten only narrowly over 7f last time and his front-running style looks ideal for this shorter trip.

Ginner was impressive in getting up late to score but is not renowned for consistency, while Intercept and Abdaar look more reliable sorts who arrive in good form. The last two mentioned have to give weight to BLOW THE WHISTLE, though, and Timothy Kreiser's recent track and trip winner can take advantage of that here.

Verdict

A highly competitive affair with UGOTTAHAVEHEART getting the tentative vote. A dual winner recently, he had Coaches Challenge, True To The Moon and Nico's Prize behind last time and could confirm the form, though the latter bled in that race and could bounce back.
