Verdict

BOLD SIR BRIAN rattled up a hat-trick before finishing fourth in better company at Haydock in March. He hasn't raced since but may still be good enough to land this over what appears to be his best trip. Railway Dillon looks a big danger, however, as he came home unchallenged at Perth in April and should continue on the upgrade while Rival D'Estruval won easily over C&D last month and is another with scope. Mr Moonshine carried 12lb less than when winning this last year but had a recent pipe-opener over hurdles, though may not appreciate the soft going.
