This looks a very poor renewal and with various question marks over most of the field it looks a simple task to pick out the value here at the current prices. Sea Lord is anything but proven on the ground but I can’t have the favourite at the prices and the stable in in great form. I’ve missed the 14/1 but 12/1 will suffice as he’s not that in this race. He’ll go of at 8/1 or less.

1 Point win 12/1

If there is one possible underrated horse in this field it has to be Indian Castle . He will need to improve on his season al reappearance but he should do that and this looks a poorish renewal of this race. He has form on soft ground and to me is less exposed than the favourite here.  6/1 looks a fair price and seems the best value here to me.

1 Point win 6/1 Generally

Midnight Appeal takes a decent drop in class here after a very good run last week off 1lb higher. This trip will be more up his street and it looks significant to get him back out that quick, and on form could win this with a bit in hand. I expect him to be backed later on and the current 6/1 looks a nice bit of value.
