In depth

Verdict

Alright Sunshine just came up short over track and trip three weeks ago and is only a pound higher. His yard is in good form so he shouldn’t be far away again. Cardano was no match for Title at Doncaster but placed over this trip at Musselburgh in April. Dancing Harry couldn’t cope with a further 5lb rise at Newmarket and Solent Gateway has gone up 6lb for winning at Chester, though had more in hand than the result suggests. STATE OF BLISS was very well supported at Chester last time but got bogged down in the soft ground. He gives the impression he’ll stay this far but Summer's Knight has already proved his stamina and will be a danger.
