In depth

Verdict

Luddenmore is definitely the form pick but hasn't been seen since this meeting a year ago. The betting should tell us if he's ready but the race-fit KASHLINE looks the safer option. A dual winning point-to-pointer, he's performed with credit on both starts over timber and this looks his turn. Castlerock Rose has shown a bit of promise and her allowance will help but winning bumper Tidy Zag has run poorly on all starts over timber.
