Auld Sod (5/2), Hold Me Tight (3/1), Gold Mountain (9/2), Wisecracker (5/1), Agentleman (10/1), Sea's Aria (12/1), Thomas Blossom (20/1), Un Beau Roman (33/1), Poetic Presence (50/1), Fanfaronade (50/1), Peace Approved (80/1)

Verdict

This drop back in trip could be just the ticket for GOLD MOUNTAIN, who has responded well to the more positive tactics adopted by James Best at Newton Abbot the last twice and there's no obvious competition for the lead here. Auld Sod makes his debut for Philip Hobbs off a career-low mark and is one to note in the betting, while Hold Me Tight will be a threat if reproducing his latest effort.

  2. AULD SOD (IRE)
  3. HOLD ME TIGHT (IRE)
