Verdict

Kellys Brow shrugged off an absence to beat Big Society at Ludlow but the runner-up is fancied to turn that form around here on 6lb better terms. Smadynium is probably the pick of the three Donald McCain runners but there shouldn't be much between the trio, though they all look to be facing a stiff task at the weights in this. Liberty Court, Oscar Magic and the mare Tweedledrum should all be in the firing-line, however, and the lightly-raced Chesterten won very easily at Warwick earlier this month and is capable of further progress. But so is TORNADO IN MILAN, who got off the mark at Plumpton last month. A hood has made Evan Williams' seven-year-old concentrate and he might still be well handicapped.
