Verdict

Intiqaal disappointed when favourite at Yarmouth last time and has still to prove he stays this trip. There are no stamina doubts surrounding Bold Marc or Tanforan, though whether either are up to winning in this grade nowadays is open to debate. It looks like the handicapper has got to grips with Dazakhee, while Star Addition has yet to win on turf and is probably better over further. Richard Price does well with the few runners he sends here from his Herefordshire base so it may be worth taking a chance on RED DAGGER, who is only 4lb higher than when scoring over this trip at Newcastle last year and will be a lot sharper for a recent pipe-opener over hurdles.
