Verdict

Celestial Magic won this contest 12 months ago and should be fit to mount another challenge having found his way back to the same handicap mark again. Walsingham Grange is a frustrating sort, but could do well if repeating the form of his all the way Bangor win recently. Handicap debutants Commodore and LISSYCASEY are also to be noted. The later has improved in each of three starts at Ludlow and should be ready for this as a result.
  1. Lissycasey
  2. Celestial Magic
  3. Walsingham Grange
