Verdict

CLASHER weakened under pressure when tried over 6f here last time but his previous runner-up effort reads well and the drop back in distance look a wise move. Desert Lightning might prove best of the others with experience, although newcomer Iron Choo Choo is also seriously considered for the in-form Chappell barn.
