Verdict

This better ground will suit JUSTWHATEVERULIKE and he is preferred to Royal Mackintosh and Fiftyfive Degrees. Sandra Forster's gelding has been in good form over the last year, winning twice at Kelso in four starts there. Today he ventures to a different track but his best form is on a decent surface like we have today and with Tom Messenger back in the saddle the pair could go well. Royal Mackintosh is a strong-stayer and lost little caste in defeat when third to L'Aventure in the Borders National, El Bandito has gone well fresh in the past but is hard to put forward having returned lame when last seen, whilst this trip is more realistic for the one-paced Camden George. Timmy Murphy takes over in the saddle on Fiftyfive Degrees who was a ready winner at the track last month; the gelding has a 5lb higher mark to contend with today but has plenty in his favour. Categorical took advantage of a tidy mark at Newcastle last month but has been severely spanked on the bottom by the handicapper for that, Harry Flashman looks well-treated if getting his jumping together, whilst Snowy has failed to complete on his last two starts. The return to this longer trip on better ground will suit bottom-weight General Hardi who cannot be ignored, however the vote of confidence goes to Justwhateverulike.
