Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ARIJ improved his rating a little further despite not being seen to best effect in a race working out well at Wolverhampton 18 days ago, so makes plenty of appeal back at this venue, where he's grabbed a share of the spoils previously. Hat-trick seeker No Nay Bella is well respected, while Dark Pine could have a say if bouncing back to something like his best on first outing for a new yard.

Betting Forecast

7/2 Arij (Ire), 5/2 No Nay Bella (Ire), 12/1 Hold Fast (Ire), 9/1 Dark Pine (Ire), 16/1 Channel Packet, 15/2 Stamford Raffles, 9/1 Numberoneson (Ire), 14/1 Delta River
