Verdict

Plenty of these are struggling for form but that comment doesn't apply to Botham, who has won his last two starts including one over C&D last time. However, both victories came with some cut in the ground and he may need the rains to arrive to land his hat-trick. THINKING is still improving and he makes more appeal. Tim Easterby's four-year-old ran out a cosy winner at Musselburgh recently and can confirm running with fourth-placed Northern Flyer in the process of following up. Hits Only Jude makes most appeal of the remainder.
