Verdict

Gone Dutch ended last season with a double and is only 2lb higher on his return. Top Diktat also bids for a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Kempton but is upped in class. Mubtadi ran well on his reappearance at Wolverhampton and a bold bid is expected from him but a speculative vote goes to CIRCUMVENT. A rare winner nowadays, Paul Cole's charge wasn't disgraced in the Winter Derby on his first start since September and faces an easier task in this company. Northern Star, Toga Tiger and Sheila's Buddy are others to consider in an open contest.
