There may only be four runners in this but it's quite competitive. It may be worth sticking with AULD STHOCK now he's got his head in front. He won over 3m between the flags and bolted up in a handicap at Plumpton last month having previously proved frustrating over hurdles. Always Archie may be the danger as he's been knocking on the door and ran his best race so far when second at Ludlow last time. Sealous Scout has a bit more to do than when winning at Kelso and Oliver's Hill only ran on Saturday when fourth in a Uttoxeter handicap.
