Verdict

Switched Off isn't exactly reliable but should be thereabouts in this grade. One For Harry won at Sedgefield and Newcastle before pulling up at Ayr. War On was also pulled up last time but Leac An Scail arrives off the back of a second at Wetherby, though normally needs much further than this. GYMDOLI was out of his depth at Kelso last time and ran accordingly. But Ray Nixon's novice will be a lot happier in this company and has a decent chance at the weights. Chavoy sprang a surprise at Carlisle last month but is 7lb higher here.
