Verdict

Rupert Bear has won three of his last four starts but the handicapper may have his measure now and ANNA'S ARCH is arguably even more progressive. Alan Swinbank's course winner was always going well at Sedgefield subsequently and can defy a 12lb higher mark to complete the hat-trick. Sir Tantallus Hawk would have a chance on his best form while Livvy Inn wasn't winning out of turn at Hexham last time and Grant Cockburn again takes off 7lb. Claude Carter's winning run came to an end at Musselburgh last time, however, and King's Chorister has been below par so far this term.
