Verdict

Oh Ma Lad won this off a higher mark last year and has to come into the reckoning but the veteran Categorical is 8lb higher than his last win on the Flat in 2012. Jonny Delta scored over today's trip at Musselburgh last month but is worse off with runner-up SIRVINO. The latter only has a neck to make up and gets the vote to take his revenge. Neither Linguine nor Aryal are the most reliable but Pixie Cut has a shout on her recent third over 1m4f as she'll likely improve for the longer trip.
