In depth

Verdict

Both Arrayan and STOW arrive in decent form considering this is a seller. Alex Dunn's gelding easily won a claimer at Ludlow earlier this month while Michael Blake's charge won at Leicester and Fakenham before finding only The Jugopolist too good back at Leicester last time. Neither will mind the ground but the latter is probably the stronger stayer and, rated a couple of pounds higher, gets a narrow vote. Sir Dylan had an outing on the Fibresand recently but finished tailed off and has a mountain to climb at the weights.
