Verdict

Hunters Belt was beaten in a seller at Catterick last time, which doesn't bode well for his chances in this better race. Gulf Punch is 14lb higher than when scoring over a longer trip here earlier in the season but Little Boy Boru has every chance on an improved third at Ayr. GRANARUID won under today's pilot over track and trip in December before finding the company too hot at Kelso - Alison Hamilton's charge can bounce back today.
