Verdict

GRAND DIAMOND's last three victories have been over this course and distance and he's perfectly capable of scoring again from this mark with Samantha Bell's claim a real bonus. He's handed the verdict to see off his stablemate Ronald Gee, who appeared to be suited by softer ground when runner-up at Musselburgh. Sherman McCoy won a seller at Catterick and though he's won off higher marks in the past he will need to step up on recent form as will Hunting Ground, whose two career victories have been on the all-weather. Kolonel Kirkup was surprisingly supported at Hamilton last time where the 1m1f trip looked much too short so last week's runner-up on that track Geanie Mac may prove more of a threat despite having just one victory in 34 starts to her credit.
