Verdict

All of these have a chance of sorts if going back far enough but LONGSHADOW arrives with the best recent form. He defied a 6lb penalty to win by nearly four lengths at Musselburgh last time and a hat-trick looks on the cards for Jason Ward's charge. New Tarabela continues to run well without getting his head in front and steps up in trip here while Ebony Express is another who may improve for the longer distance. Rosairlie has also been thereabouts off higher marks since winning at Ripon in May and should figure again.
