Verdict

Soft ground is no problem for Definightly and he would be a major threat to all if taking to the headgear whilst Aye Aye Digby also has enough form in the book to be feared if cheekpieces reverse his fortunes. Spitfire is worthy of close consideration as the ground has come in his favour and he looked to be on the way back when third to a decent sort at Yarmouth but the percentage call is to side with SLIP SLIDING AWAY as Harlech Castle has to prove that he can reproduce his all-weather form on turf and Palisades Park and Seamus Shindig that they can run up to their best on soft ground. Slip Sliding Away has done nothing but improve since joining Peter Hedger and he won with sufficient authority over course and distance to believe that a 9lb rise in the weights won't scupper his bid although he has yet to encounter soft ground.
