Verdict

Bold Cross saves his best for this venue but is 6lb higher than when scoring here last month. He should be thereabouts once again but STAG HILL is preferred. The latter never figured in a higher grade handicap three weeks ago but went close in similar company to this at Ffos Las before that and gets a tentative vote. Spanish Plume still looks a shade high in the weights judged on his recent placed efforts and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
