Verdict

Master Fiddle got off the mark at Newbury last time but had previously looked difficult to place and, though he should be suited by this first try over 3m, the six-year-old is passed over here. Lively Baron has been highly tried since completing a hat-trick here in January while Golfer's Crossing won over 2m7f at Kelso last month, though disappointed next time at Hexham. Majestic Mayhem stays well and hinted at a revival last time and Yes Tom won well over C&D in February after chasing home Grand National hero Ballabriggs over 2m4f here earlier. But McCoy's mount is no certainty to confirm latest running with ARCTIC COURT, who is 18lb better off for a 14-length defeat and is also a previous C&D winner. With Timmy Murphy likely to hold him up, he could pounce late to land this.
