Verdict

Lough Coi won at Lingfield and Leicester on heavy ground before finishing third at Huntingdon and can't be ignored here receiving weight all round. But, at the opposite end of the handicap, we fancy SUSTAINABILITY to get back to winning ways as he was only beaten half-a-length off today's mark at Wincanton last month. Ballywatt has been a big disappointment and likewise Captain Paulie but Keki Buku would have a chance on his best form, though has been difficult to train over the last couple of years.
