Verdict

Hellorboston only won by half-a-length at Bangor and is 6lb higher here but a return to a longer trip should help. Lackamon made a bold attempt to make all at Newcastle last week but got collared at the last. A 5lb rise in the weights has done him no favours, however, while Wetherby scorer Who Owns Me has been raised a further 3lb since finishing second at Newbury. DROP OUT JOE probably deserves a change of luck as he bounces off this good ground. He couldn't match the finishing kick of Dawn Commander at Doncaster three weeks ago but none of these appear to have the pace of that bumper winner. Wolf Shield won in a lesser grade at Newcastle in January but has been well beaten in other recent starts.
