Verdict

THE RUSTLIN RHINO is chanced in a weak race. Donald McCain's gelding shapes like this trip will suit and this half-brother to Grand National hero Silver Birch is fancied to run well off this lifetime-high mark of 87. Samizdat is well-handicapped, a comment that probably also applies to Dee Cee Bolter and Make It Blossom. Stormion is unexposed and is not one to rule out just yet, and along with Solway Blue (likely to be fitter after a Kelso reappearance) and Native Coll (course winner who is of interest back over hurdles off a mark of 70), is certainly respected.
