Verdict

Jeremiah McGrath takes 5lb off Bear's Affair and it would be no surprise to see the unexposed top weight go close. Four-year-olds Asaid and Secret Edge face a stiff task at the weights, however, while it looks like the handicapper has caught up with Awaywiththegreys. Persian Snow is better than he showed at Cheltenham last month while Saga de Tercey may be the pick of Donald McCain's pair at the weights but we'll give another chance to WEEKEND MILLIONAIR. He didn't stay 3m at Ffos Las last time and was eased but otherwise he's done little wrong this year and the easy ground won't be a problem. I Hear A Symphony and Hollo Ladies are better over fences.
