Verdict

ENDEAVOR's recent fourth at Kelso looks the best recent form on offer and Diane Sayer's seven-year-old, who has improved with age, gets the vote in this finale. The longer trip shouldn't be a problem as long as the ground doesn't deteriorate. Benmadigan has been in better form of late and should be thereabouts again while Stormy Morning looks a threat coming off a decent season on the Flat. Laybach was beaten a long way when second at Carlisle last time, however, and is still a maiden under both codes while Solway Dornal is high enough in the weights now.
