Verdict

SACRED MOUNTAIN finished almost 30 lengths ahead of Tartan Snow when runner-up to Cottage Oak here last month. He was also second in a similar contest at the track a year ago and can go one better today. The trip might pose a problem for Red Kingdom while Supreme Builder only beat one home between the flags at Alnwick earlier this month but at least has a recent run under his belt, unlike Instant Shot and The Bravetraveller.
