Verdict

TOPTHORN's victory at Ludlow last month came in a higher grade. He's lightly raced under Rules and may well be capable of defying a 9lb higher mark here. Plumpton winner Escardo looks held on a line through Ludlow runner-up Benny's Quest, who beat David Bridgwater's gelding at Worcester in August. Guns Of Love was well beaten at Worcester last month after winning over today's C&D on faster ground in August and none of the others make much appeal on recent form, though Al Amaan should be capable of better.
