Verdict

Noble Legend is quite capable of going close in this company on one of his going days. But BENEFIT CUT looks the more reliable having won easily at Market Rasen last week. He can shrug off a penalty and go in again. Billy Cuckoo also carries 7lb extra for his recent win at Doncaster but Have You Seen Me can effectively race off a lower mark than when second at Warwick with a conditional taking over the reins here. The consistent Rydalis is usually thereabouts without actually winning which makes it difficult for the handicapper to drop her in the weights.
