Verdict

Qalinas is still a maiden after 14 starts but the handicapper refuses to cut him much slack and he's likely to find at least one too good again. Promised Wings is a possible as he wasn't beaten far over a longer trip at Huntingdon earlier this month while Tothemoonandback was third on heavy going at Ffos Las last time and clearly stays well. KILLIMORE COTTAGE is climbing the weights and rightly so after completing his hat-trick over course and distance last month. A 7lb higher mark will make life more difficult today but we still fancy him to be up to the task.
