SCOTCH WARRIOR is four from four over course and distance and has nothing to fear from Sergeant Pink on latest running. Callum Bewley is good value for his 7lb claim and Mike Smith's charge can win again. Valleyofmilan didn't beat much at Cartmel but has plenty of scope for improvement and Lucinda Russell holds a strong hand with Quito Du Tresor and Be My Deputy. Acapulco Gold fell at Tipperary last time but won his previous start at Wexford and has more chance at this level than Strobe.
