Verdict

Joyful Star's upturn in fortunes over the winter coincided with the switch to this track but he hasn't been seen since going close here in February, while Black Hambleton won here last year but was in wretched form in two starts earlier this term. TOP OFFER has yet to record a win this season, but his form has been very solid indeed and a repeat of his neck defeat at Wolverhampton could be enough.

Verdict

Not a strong race by any means, but WASTED SUNSETS stands out as the least exposed in the line up and, having run her best race to date when third at Yarmouth last month (handicap debut), she could be worth chancing. Joyful Star and Clary are just 2 possible threats, as is Chosen World.
