Verdict

Keeverfield won here in February and bounced back from a modest effort at Carlisle to score again at Towcester last month. He's never won at this level, however, and is conceding weight all round. ARDGLEN is one of three runners sent over from Ireland by Shark Hanlon. He had form in much better company last season and may well be good enough today with Ifonlyalfie returning from a break and Dont Tell Sailor and My Mate Vic having plenty to prove at present. Autumn Spirit is also hard to predict.
