Verdict

It could pay to stick with the recent winner STRONG MAN. He beat the re-opposing Dhhamaan five lengths at Carlisle last week so it's highly likely Mick Easterby's charge can defy a penalty and go in again. A 4lb rise proved beyond course and distance winner Burnwynd Boy last time and both he and stablemate Foolbythepool are having their first starts since September. Eilean Mor looks a bigger threat on his latest second over a mile here while Goninodaethat finished ahead of Berbice when fourth at Musselburgh last month and looks best of the remainder.
