Verdict

Cootehill has won twice here over 2m4f but looks to be too high in the weights at present and finished behind Inside Dealer over track and trip last month in the race won by Imperial Circus. The latter's trainer, Philip Hobbs, saddles the consistent Jayandbee in this but he has plenty to prove in this grade. Lava Lamp won a novices' handicap here last time but is unproven over this trip while stamina could also be an issue for Kings Lodge. RYDALIS, successful over 3m here in January, was touched off by Gas Line Boy at Exeter earlier this month. That signaled a return to form for Venetia Williams' eight-year-old, who can go one better here. Raduis Bleu has gone up a further 3lb since his latest second and might struggle today.
