Verdict

Nudge And Nurdle seems to have forgotten how to get his head in front while Badger Foot didn't show much on his reappearance though was a long way ahead of Rory Boy at Kelso in the spring and should strip fitter here. THAT'LLDOBOY faces no easy task at the weights considering he's only a five-year-old but did well to hold off the much-fancied Zarrafakt at Newbury last time with the pair clear of the remainder. He still looks to be on an upward curve and can complete the hat-trick. Matako is less exposed than Bene Lad and could run into a place if jumping round safely.
