Verdict

Another tough handicap but Osteopathic Remedy won it last year off a 5lb lower mark and was successful for the first time since at Ripon last month, denying Robert The Painter a four-timer. Danny Tudhope usually rides the latter but has switched here to Two For Two, who was third to Norse Blues in the Thirsk Hunt Cup in the spring and reopposes on 6lb better terms. LEVITATE only had a head to spare over third Brae Hill when winning the Lincoln at Doncaster in March and the latter is 6lb better off here. But he's never won on soft whereas John Quinn's five-year-old revels on an easy surface and will have needed the run when third at Doncaster last week. Taking into account Oisin Murphy's claim, he may be the one to beat as Pintura still looks too high in the handicap. Anna's Pearl could appreciate this drop in grade but fellow three-year-old Aeronwyn Bryn has shot up the weights lately.
