Verdict

Recent Downpatrick third Call Box wasn't beaten far off today's mark in a better race at Hexham in October. This is his trip and he shouldn't be far away while Divers has fallen to an attractive mark, though is probably still better over fences and was behind Merchant of Dubai in Strongpoint's race here last month. Damascus Steel and Unex Canaletto have a bit to prove now and Biggar is a maiden who is unproven over this distance. LOS NADIS showed he was no back number when beaten less than two lengths over 3m1f here in November. He may get an easy lead in this and could take some pegging back.
