Verdict

Hogmaneigh is the highest rated of these but his current mark isn't based on anything he's achieved recently. This is a huge drop in class, however, though there must be a big doubt about him getting home over this trip and HANDSOME FALCON has far more going for him. Ollie Pears' seven-year-old has the plum draw and a good record on The Westwood so, with Lee Topliss taking off 5lb, should take all the beating. Kipchak does most of his racing on the all-weather nowadays but Opus Maximus has a chance at the weights, though has been done no favours by the draw.
