Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute's lightly-raced 4-y-o CHAI YO POWER caught the eye when considerately handled at Lingfield on his return and he looks the way to go here now stepping into handicap company on a lenient mark. In-form maiden Topanticipation appeals as the one to chase him home, with Canal Rocks much respected too for his new handler.

Betting Forecast

13/8 Chai Yo Power, 6/1 Sceptred Isle, 5/1 Topanticipation, 9/1 Big Wing (Ire), 9/1 Canal Rocks, 22/1 Millions Memories, 28/1 Zambezi Magic
