At The Races Verdict

The penny finally dropped for KIRUNA PEAK when she got off the mark in this sphere at Southwell last month and she could strike while the iron is hot off a 6lb higher mark, with the Fergal O'Brien stable continuing to thrive. The Road Home ran out a comfortable nine-length winner at Hexham earlier this month and can remain competitive despite an 8lb hike from the assessor. Lovely Schtuff was another to impress when scoring at Sedgefield recently and has to be considered, along with Cool Country, who has been knocking on the door this summer.

Timeform Verdict

LOVELY SCHTUFF took advantage of a much-reduced mark in good style when finally off the mark at Sedgefield 3 weeks ago and remains well treated despite an 8 lb rise. The Road Home had a bit in hand at Hexham and is another to consider along with Kiruna Peak, who also won last-time out.
