Verdict

A trappy affair with plenty having claims and a chance is taken that CAIRNSHILL can put in a clear round and spring a surprise. He goes well in this ground and was set to go very close at Newcastle three starts back when unseating two out. Ask Paddy has a decent chance of completing a four-timer despite an 8lb hike in the weights. He could not be in better form, while old rivals Agamemmon and Late Date are not out of this if things go their way. Veteran Loose Chips will give his all and comes here on the back of a win at Plumpton, and getting lots of weight Againn Dul Agaidh could figure if handling conditions.
  1. Cairnshill
  2. Ask Paddy
  3. Loose Chips
