Verdict

A couple of the recent winners look to have plenty on their plate. Perfect Cracker drops back in trip off an 8lb higher mark after scoring at Windsor on Monday and Ocean Legend was upped 10lb for his recent win at Brighton. Stormbound ended last year with a victory over track and trip and has a shout on his return but BARNMORE is preferred. The latter finished well ahead of Top Set here a fortnight ago and with an apprentice's allowance taken into consideration, is effectively only 2lb higher today. Hierarch remains in fine form and is another to consider.
