Verdict

Rhymers Ha' was all out to win by a short-head over a slightly shorter trip here last month and is 8lb higher now. That means he has to give 11lb to GYMDOLI, who has made giant strides lately and was probably up against a decent novice here last time. The latter can recapture the winning thread as Shanen probably needs to improve on what he's shown so far over hurdles to figure and Cool Baranca still looks a shade high in the weights. Circus Clown could get involved if a recent run over fences has brought him forward but the others are more difficult to recommend.
