Verdict

A tight-knit handicap in which the vote goes to the free-going ELDELBAR who signalled he's ready to open his account for 2022 when a good staying-on third at Redcar (form been franked) and should also get the race run to suit. Course-specialist Proud Archi seems sure to be on the premises along with the consistent Truth In Jest, while Emily Post and Go Sing are shortlisted too.[Peter Entwistle]
