Out of his depth last time but good effort when third behind Guitar Pete here prior to that over 2m4f and drop down to the minimum here not a problem. Connections took this race last year.
Beaten 11 times since last success at Kelso in October last year and although the handicapper has dropped him 8lb for three runs this term he does need to prove his wellbeing.
C&D win in October was a good effort and a repeat of that would certainly put him in the mix, but below that form when only third behind an exposed sort at Ayr since so needs to bounce back.
Mud-lover who showed the benefit of a wind operation when beating Ain't My Fault under 1L at Kelso. Raised 5lb for that but still well treated on old form so not to be dismissed lightly.
Front-runner who has found one too good on three runs over fences but was only caught close home by Ubaltique last time and little between them on revised ratings. More to come and respected.
Nuts Well (9/4), Ain't My Fault (3/1), Ballyvic Boru (3/1), Demi Sang (9/2), Charmant (13/2), Ubaltique (15/2)
