Verdict

Pamak D'airy has been knocking on the door lately but it's a long time since he managed to get his head in front. Cloverhill Lad is returning from a break while Decent Lord is out of sorts, as is Vardas Supreme, but Discoverie was only beaten a short-head at Catterick last week and has every chance of going one better here. ROBIN'S COMMAND was well backed at Sedgefield last time and has been dropped a further 5lb since. He should be capable of winning a race like this off his current mark and is preferred to Crackerjack Lad.
