In depth

Verdict

Master Red has obvious claims if staying on his feet having fallen on his last two starts. Still in contention on both occasions, Donald McCain's charge should make another bold bid here. But until sorting out his jumping, it could pay to take him on and ANOTHER MATTIE looks a safer conveyance. His recent placed efforts include a second over track and trip and he's taken to go one better today. Utopian can also be given a chance on his recent fourth at Kelso and Aneedh looks likely to improve from his debut third at the same track.
