In depth

Verdict

Border Station won one of these over track and trip earlier this month but could only finish fifth at Kempton on Friday and it makes no sense to desert REPRESENTINGCELTIC today. Pat Phelan's gelding has proved a revelation on the Polytrack, beating City Press at Kempton last month and getting the better of Dr Livingstone over course and distance 12 days ago. Both runner-ups won at Kempton on Friday so the form is very solid and he's likely to be a short price to complete the hat-trick. Finger Onthe Pulse is a former Cheltenham Festival winner but hasn't run in a bumper for eight years and Highland River and Kayfton Pete have been on a break.
