Verdict

John Wade has trained the winner in three of the four previous renewals and Dingo Bay looks to have leading claims. The latter arrives on the back of a double over these fences and should take the step up in trip in his stride. However, TUTCHEC finished fourth in what looked a tougher race than this at Carlisle last time and Nicky Richards' charge gets the nod. Boris The Blade has lost his way since winning over track and trip in December and Quacity has gone backwards after a decent third at Kelso in the same month. Milan Royale scored at Sedgefield recently but this is more competitive, though Blazing Diva has a shout on her earlier second behind Dingo Bay.
