At The Races Verdict

Robert Cowell has won two of the last four runnings of this contest and appears to have another cracking chance with BLUE DE VEGA this time around. Although he came up short when bidding to complete the four-timer at Leicester recently, there was no disgrace in that runner-up effort behind the 107-rated Tis Marvellous and a repeat performance will make him tough to beat. Caspian Prince went close in a similar event at Salisbury last time and rates the biggest threat, ahead of Texting.

Timeform Verdict

BLUE DE VEGA is going through a real purple patch at present, rattling off a hat-trick prior to a good second in a Leicester minor event 9 days ago. He can continue the good work back in a handicap, with Caspian Prince and Texting heading up the dangers.
