Verdict

MALLER TREE looks the one to beat in this. Favoured at the weights, he was beaten only a length in similar company at Ffos Las earlier in the month and should come out best if running anywhere near his mark. Rosslyn Castle scored at Chepstow last month and has every chance on that form. But the selection is rated 15lb higher and Thinger Licht has even more to find. Drummers Drumming and Taxi Des Obeaux look up against it on these terms.
