KINDALLACHAN is only three pounds higher in the weights for his latest success and is taken to win again at the expense of Afton View and Tadlil. The selection was a ready course and distance winner last time out and although he has not been the easiest horse to win with he still looks fairly weighted and if he can recapture that form he has to go close. Afton View is winless in eighteen starts but that said he has been running consistently well in defeat of late and has the ability once again to be in the shake up. Tadlil has a favourable all weather rating and caught the eye when second at Southwell over a similar trip recently so any support in the market should be noted. But for the winner we return to Kindallachan.
