Verdict

Etxalar scored at Carlisle last month and seems better at that track than anywhere else judged on his win record. Another veteran in ROLECARR makes more appeal given he's 4lb lower than when scoring in heavy ground at Kelso last season and is dropping down in class for this. War On ran well here a fortnight ago behind Swatow Typhoon and can figure again but Knockgraffon King and Mister Philson arrive badly out of sorts, though both are capable at this level if rediscovering their best.
