Verdict

And The Man scored over course and distance last time but is taking on tougher opposition today including CAPTAIN AMERICO. The latter was beaten only a length in a higher grade chase at Kelso in December and James Ewart's charge can go one better in this company. You Know Yourself will also be more at home at this level while Do It For Dalkey has shown improved form of late with a couple of placed efforts off today's mark and is another to consider. Netminder was raised a harsh looking 10lb for finishing runner-up here in January and he was duly well beaten at Doncaster last time.
