Verdict

Knight Valliant hasn't won for a while and isn't getting any younger but showed he could still be a force at this level when fourth at Catterick. Acordingtoscript was second over a longer trip at Catterick last time but still beaten 19 lengths and is very one-paced. Amethyst Rose won at Hexham in November in a race in which W Six Times fell. But she's struggled off higher marks since while Ancient Times appears to be regressing at a rate of knots. NORTHERN ACRES was closing on the leaders at Newcastle earlier this month when falling two out. He'd finished ahead of Ancient Times and Acordingtoscript when sixth at the same track earlier and compensation awaits here.
