Verdict

This looks very tight with Donald McCain confusing the issue by saddling two of the four runners. Billfromthebar is set to make his chasing debut but could prove useful in this sphere. However, he scrambled home over hurdles at Hexham on Friday and Jason Maguire has deserted him for ATLANTA FALCON, who has to be forgiven a poor run at Bangor after an excellent summer that saw him score at Uttoxeter and Worcester. Kris Cross was narrowly beaten by Bobble Hat Bob at Hexham when receiving 7lb and collateral form suggests he'll have a problem conceding weight to Carrigdhoun, who was giving that winner 9lb when four lengths behind him here in May but latter weakened quickly on his reappearance at Hexham yesterday.
