Verdict

It's impossible to have much faith in Big News at present but Lord Fox arrives in good heart and chasing a hat-trick after victories at Leicester and Fakenham. He's gone up a further 4lb but that's not insurmountable. Tin Pot Man is 7lb lower than when winning over course and distance last year but has been struggling to get his head in front lately. Despite competing from out of the handicap again, TOM BACH can effectively race off a lower mark than when scoring by 22 lengths over 3m here 11 days ago. He likes it here and another success beckons.
