In depth

Verdict

Cravat is penalised for winning at Lingfield last week and Nubar Boy is upped 5lb for scoring over track and trip three weeks ago. The latter had HILL OF DREAMS back in third on that occasion but Dean Ivory's charge re-opposes on better terms today and gets the nod having slipped back down to a winning mark. Byroness and Blackthorn Stick are weighted to figure but both are less than reliable while recent Wolverhampton winner Dividend Dan is facing a tougher task today.
