Verdict

Rory Boy, Nigel Twiston-Davies' only runner at the meeting, has tumbled down the weights and was third when tried in blinkers at Stratford last month. He could go close along with Sedgefield third Justwhateverulike, another who is starting to look well handicapped. The hat-trick seeking Our Jim loves this fast ground but this looks a big ask for prolific pointer Badger Foot and Harry Flashman disappointed at Hexham last month. OR DE GRUGY has proved something of a Kelso specialist in the past and came right back to form when third at Perth last month. The nine-year-old could be the one today.
