Form & Verdict

No longer the force of old but dug deep for narrow win at Bath (1m, good to soft) in May and has since been placed over C&D; below form last time but won't mind what the weather does today; each-way claims at least.

Ex-Irish maiden; disappointing favourite at Lingfield six weeks ago but went close over C&D (good to soft) on seasonal/stable debut in May and has strong claims if judged on that performance; cheekpieces refitted.

Clearcut winner of Lingfield classified (7.6f, good to firm) last month and looked shade unlucky not to follow up in that grade at Bath (1m, firm) four days later; this handicap is tougher but at least we know he's in good nick; placed on good to soft ground, unraced on anything worse.

Verdict

It’s worth giving another chance to BANTRY, who didn’t fire when favourite at Lingfield last month but was a clear second to a next-time-out winner over C&D two starts ago and is only 1lb higher today. Unexposed 3yo Lucidity may benefit from today’s drop back in trip and she’s feared most. Eye Of The Water (placed behind the selection here in May) and Thewaytothestars are others to consider.[Chris Wilson]
