Verdict

He might have a bit to do at the weights but TIMOCRACY looks the stand-out choice here. The Andy Haynes runner was pulled out of a similar engagement in the week so it could be suggested that connections fancy this opportunity more. He wrapped up a six timer at this level before a slightly disappointing defeat but he still looked in good form when put over hurdles last time. Kames Park is well served by the framing of this race and should benefit for dropping back into this grade while North Central should go well from his weight.
