TWEEDO PARADISO took a long time to get on top when favourite at Carlisle last month so this sharper track has to be a worry. But Good Boy Jackson and chasers Civil Unrest and Schinken Otto all like to force the pace so they may go fast enough to bring his undoubted stamina into play and Rose Dobbin's charge gets the nod to follow up. Claude Carter should make the frame but is possibly still a few pounds too high while Cadore isn't one to trust and was well beaten at Perth last time.
