Verdict

Brae Hill is hard to catch right but has previous winning form here. Anaconda finished last at this venue before scoring at Windsor last time while Big Johnny D has looked in the handicapper's grip so far this season but has every chance on today's terms dropped in class. He's preferred to Conry, a dual winner at Catterick last month but facing a tough task at the weights in this. SWEET LIGHTNING has not been the most consistent recently but has been competing in much better company than this and could go very close if producing one of his better efforts.
