Everaard has struck form with a vengeance but his three wins have all been at Musselburgh and he's 4lb higher than when recording the last of those. Kate Walton's six-year-old may be worth opposing here with the less-exposed LOW GALES, who was surprisingly allowed to start at 33/1 when successful at Ludlow last month having run a lot better than his final placing suggested in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham previously. Jukebox Melody is consistent but tries 3m for the first time while General Ting disappointed when favourite at Sandown and may have stamina issues. Peedeeque also looks worth opposing over this trip but Dusky Bob is only a couple of pounds higher than when second at Carlisle and can make the frame again.
