Verdict

Paul Nicholls has trained the winner of this three times in the last four years and SOUND INVESTMENT should keep the run going. He trounced the more experienced Massena at Taunton nine days ago and that's the best recent form on offer. Witness In Court won over this trip at Musselburgh in January but is generally better over further and disappointed back at the Scottish track next time. Harry Hunt's only run since the autumn came in a Polytrack bumper but he should strip fitter here and is preferred to the older Roger Beantown.
