Verdict

Banyan Tree faces a stiff task at the weights on his return from a break, while there may be too much give in the ground for Knight In Purple. Johns Spirit has to go on the short-list, however, having scored by six lengths at Stratford last month and Shadows Lengthen is a lot better than he showed at Wetherby two weeks ago. HOUSTON DYNIMO was conceding plenty of weight to the first two when only third at Carlisle last month. Back over his best trip here and with a 7lb claimer in the saddle, he can recapture the winning thread though the potentially well-weighted Arctic Wings is the type that will pop up when least expected.
