Verdict

Flying Award stays extreme distance and is back in the right grade having been pulled up at Ffos Las last time. Alderluck won off a higher mark at Bangor last year but hasn't really been firing this term, though has the beating of Musical Wedge on the form book. Five Star Wilsham and The Clyda Rover have also struggled lately while Coolking will have his stamina to prove, though did score on heavy ground when trained in Ireland. ARMEDANDDANGEROUS is another trying a new trip but his style of running gives him every chance of getting home. He's back on a winning mark on his favourite surface so gets the nod as Somerby is racing from 12lb out of the handicap proper.
