Verdict

This looks a decent contest for the track which is complicated by the fact that in-form Ian Williams saddles two recent winners. Wayne Hutchinson partners course and distance scorer Bobcatbilly but we are going to stick with DRUMLANG, who bolted up at Leicester last time. Robert McCarth's claim takes care of most of the extra 7lb. Be All Man couldn't quite complete the hat-trick at Taunton last time but this step up in distance will suit and his yard is going well. Cloudy Joker got off the mark at Musselburgh last month but the others probably have a bit to find to get involved.
