Verdict

KILCASCAN wasn't beaten far over today's trip at Warwick a fortnight ago when Get Ready To Go finished six lengths further back. The former had won at Uttoxeter before that and is fancied to go in again here though the latter should finish closer on today's better terms. Musical Wedge made a decent comeback at Chepstow behind Royal Mile and won't be far away in this similar company but the remainder are hard to fancy on what little they've shown of late.
