At the age of 15, most racehorses will have already been put out to pasture but KELTIC LORD is still earning his keep and there would be no more popular winner of this. Peter Hiatt's veteran won off this mark at Stratford last August and was an honourable third at Towcester on his reappearance. He can make the most of the 9lb he receives from Plumpton winner Or Sing About. See You Jack continues to disappoint but Knight Woodsman was runner-up on his debut over fences and should improve. He's preferred to Frosty Spring over this trip.
