At The Races Verdict

RUACANA has been revitalised by the switch to the Zoe Davison team, winning over the extended 2m3f here before successfully dropping to this C&D to score with plenty up his sleeve. He is only up another 4lb and is worth sticking with while in such good heart. Hier Encore has a rare foray away from Fontwell but could make the frame, as could Nelson's Touch.

Timeform Verdict

BONNE QUESTION excels in the mud, and on the back of a considerate reappearance, is expected to leave that run well behind representing an in-form yard. Ruacana chases a course hat-trick so has to command respect, while Ghost Serge warrants a market check starting out for David Pipe.
