Saluti has fallen down the weights this season as he has yet to hit the frame in five starts. The seven-time winner is a much better horse on turf than the AW so those runs at Newcastle at the start of the campaign can be ignored. Although the form of this sprinter is a concern, he is now 4lb lower than his last victory. This class five contest gives him a good chance if he is able to bounce back. Expect to see Paul Midgley's runner underrepresented in the pools.


Storm Melody

After competing in 64 races so far in his career, Storm Melody is one of the most experienced runners in this handicap contest. This sprinter has been a long way off his best in his last two outings. He has now had over six weeks off which is something he may have needed as he has been on the go since January on the AW. Ali Stronge's runner is back down to his last winning mark. If he returns fresh, he has an excellent chance of getting back to winning ways.


Open Wide

Open Wide is a C&D winner who does not prevail very often now. The seven-year-old remains very capable though. The handicapper has given him a good chance off this mark of 91. He shaped like he needed the run at Goodwood last time in what was his seasonal reappearance. Amanda Perrett's sprinter will be much fitter on this occasion. He is not a horse to be underestimated, particularly on his return to this happy hunting ground.
