Verdict

C&D winner HERE NOW AND WHY looks capable of scoring off today's mark judged on his latest close-up second at Hamilton. He had Lees Anthem, Drumpellier and Cayman Fox behind on that occasion and Ian Semple's charge should go one better. It was soft ground when Sandwith won at Hamilton a fortnight ago and he wouldn't want the ground to dry out any further though he still looks the biggest threat to the selection with the likes of You'relikemefrank and Missile Attack arriving in poor form.
