Verdict
Solid course and distance winner BOXER DUNFORD was beaten favourite last time out when finishing second of 14 beaten 1¾L adrift of the winner The Lords Walk in March. The five-year-old is racing just 1lb higher than his last winning mark and can land the spoils here fending off the attentions of Alfirak, winner here last month, and the consistent Time Stands Still who can hit the frame from the gallant Oor Jock who continues to turn back the clock.
  1. Boxer Dunford
  2. Alfirak
  3. Time Stands Still
