Verdict

A tricky puzzle to solve as Ballyclough probably has the scope to be better than these but has been off the track for a long time. Seedless is a reliable mare who will probably set out to make all while Richard Newland has sent Ahyaknowyerself up from the Cotswolds in a bid to go one better than at Ffos Las, though he has to concede weight all round. PAS TROP TARD is much improved this season, winning at Perth and storming clear over this C&D next time. He can complete the hat-trick with the ground in his favour again. Maybe I Wont and the four-year-old Unex Picasso aren't short of ability but have a bit to find if they are to get involved in this grade.
