RACE SUMMARY: This is something of a minefield and, by process of elimination, ACCORDINGTOGINO gets the nod. The 8-y-o failed to fire on his latest start, but he holds strong claims judged on much of last season’s form. This trip is a worry where Wagner is concerned (looked a non-stayer over 23f last time), while Doitforthevillage’s record when fresh doesn’t augur well and the others all have a bit to prove. 1-2-3: 1.ACCORDINGTOGINO (IRE) 2.WAGNER (IRE) 3.DOITFORTHEVILLAGE (IRE) FREE form for all British and Irish meetings is available online every day at timeform.com/free

Samba Dancer remains on a fair mark back in a handicap so needs taking seriously, especially given the way his Worcester form on his penultimate start has worked out. Blueberg is another to note returning from wind surgery.
