In depth

Verdict

Merigo makes his reappearance having won the Scottish Grand National at Ayr for the second time back in April. He may need this and LACKAMON is preferred. The latter ran really well on his comeback when third at Newcastle last month and can confirm running with fourth-placed Lockstown in the process of winning this. Relax showed good progress over fences last season but was due to run at Musselburgh yesterday and Knockara Beau still appears out of sorts. Blenheim Brook will be better for his comeback run and looks best of the rest.
