Verdict

Towbee last won a year ago but is 2lb lower and Paul Hanagan looks a positive booking. Secret Millionaire is running well but has never scored on soft ground unlike Whitecrest, who will relish the conditions. CARDINAL was returning from a long break when chasing home Taurus Twins on ground with some give at Nottingham. He's won from higher marks in the past and can go one better. Harrogate Fair was just behind at Nottingham but didn't get the clearest of runs and should get closer.
