Verdict

The form of SPRINGTOWN LAKE's latest effort looks strong and he was unlucky not to win the time before when falling after the last. A repeat of those efforts may be enough to take this contest. Whatmore perhaps should have won at Haydock last time and is likely to appreciate his first try at this trip today. Tikkanbar was impressive when winning on return and deserves a crack at this level.
