In depth

Verdict

Wicklow Lad was having only his second start for Neil Alexander when third at Carlisle and the longer trip should suit. Sun Cloud is unexposed over fences but Honest John appears to have lost his confidence and Mister Philson and Baltic Pathfinder are difficult to catch right. The Thirsty Bricky will probably find at least one too good again and Knockgraffon King faces a stiff task on his reappearance so this could rest between the two Lucinda Russell runners. Peter Buchanan rides OUTLAW TOM, who has won two of his three previous starts here and was in obvious need of his comeback run at Wetherby. He makes more appeal than the returning Fog Patches.
