Petite Margot returned to winning ways over a marathon trip at Perth in April but Nigel Twiston-Davies' mare couldn't follow up of this mark at Cartmel next time and this drop in distance and faster ground probably isn't in her favour. Cullahill won on his penultimate start at Wincanton and was only beaten half-a-length at Worcester last time so can't be ignored, while recent Fontwell third Whataboutya is on a decent mark now. But this can go to SCOTS DRAGOON who is more than capable of running well fresh. The grey sometimes needs a while to warm to his task but this track is testing nature and the top weight looked to be on his way back when third at Newbury on his latest start.
