Verdict

Trend Is My Friend is sure to be popular having got off the mark in determined fashion at Sedgefield. Endeavor is in good form but is also on a career-high mark while Millers Reef is probably best watched after a lengthy absence. Brian Ellison runs MUSNAD and Lifetime but the former looks the one to be on as he has a progressive profile and looks like being a lot better over hurdles than he was on the Flat. Craig Gallagher's 8lb claim is a major plus in a race like this.
