Verdict

Kuilsriver looks very well handicapped on last year's form and may well be the danger to OPEN HEARTED. The top weight tries his luck in handicaps after victories in maiden and novice company and can complete the hat-trick with Jeremiah McGrath good value for his 5lb claim. San Telm was an easy winner over 2m here last month and Strongly Suggested went close at Huntingdon last time and should be winning soon. Balding Banker also has claims on his best form, though was a little disappointing at Cheltenham last time.
