Verdict

Hollins won over course and distance in December but hasn't been seen since and is 10lb higher now. Pensnett Bay is another course winner but has been well beaten in all starts this season and Gentle Bob probably needs a bit more off his current mark, though should be thereabouts again. Lord of Drums is probably more effective on better ground but is another with each-way claims, though we'd like to give another chance to KINGCORA. He was still going well when unseating his rider at Fontwell last time and earlier efforts at Exeter and Ascot suggest he should be well up to winning a race like this.
