Definite Outcome (2/1), Lord Ballim (11/4), Chidswell (5/1), The Fresh Prince (9/1), No No Mac (9/1), West Wizard (10/1), Aminabad (20/1)
A difficult puzzle to solve with a number of these horses seemingly wanting softer ground than they're likely to encounter. West Wizard makes the long journey North and conditions shouldn't trouble him, but the double application of tongue tie and cheek-pieces are a concern. Chidswell looks guaranteed to relish stepping back up in trip after finding Kelso way too sharp for him on his latest start, but he's another who prefers cut. No No Mac has had a busy week, and this is definitely easier than the race he ran in at Ayr on Scottish National weekend, but the vote goes to the lightly weighted LORD BALLIM who needs to show he's none the worse for Wednesday's experience, but if doing so can make it a fourth success in five starts for Nigel Hawke and Ciaran Gethings.
