A shocking turnout for a reasonable prize. Little Glenshee loves heavy ground and has some decent form in this grade though over longer trips and he could get outpaced in this small field. CASTLELAWN landed a couple of minor handicaps at Hexham in the summer when the ground was good but he's won a point-to-point on soft and shouldn't be too inconvenienced by the going so gets the vote. Rockawango has won 10 times on the Flat and once over hurdles but is making his debut over the bigger obstacles with top weight in a handicap. Leroy Parker has run twice over fences, both times in this grade, and was beaten a long way on his debut before pulling up at Kelso.
