In depth

Verdict

KEEPER’S CHOICE (NAP) has her ideal conditions once again bidding for a course and distance hat-trick. She defied an 11lb rise to win by over three lengths last time and hasn’t stopped improving yet. Sir Plato has won twice at Chepstow so far this year but it was heavy ground when Arctic Emperor won at Haydock and he’s yet to encounter fast going. Captain Claret goes well here while Spirit Warning has been thereabouts recently looking to end a long losing run.
