Verdict

Here And Now is another Ralph Beckett runner with strong claims on today’s card having been very lightly raced for his age. Flint Hill bids for a third course victory but is upped in grade and the ground may have turned against Ruth Jefferson’s stayer. STAG HORN won this 12 months ago as a three-year-old. Lightly campaigned this year, he can come out on top again reunited with Hollie Doyle. Notation is preferred to Warranty of the others.
