Verdict

KNOCKNAMONA scored in taking style at Newcastle last month so this course winner is taken to go in again and defy an 8 lb rise with that form having been franked. Caboy arrives on a lengthy losing run but is feared most on the back of his good Wetherby second, although Mymilan is weighted to have a say too if building on his Catterick sixth in second-time blinkers.
