Verdict

Not many horses in form here and it may pay to side with recent winner HALL OF FAME ahead of Roznic and Bushido. Keith Reveley's eight-year-old has relatively few miles on the clock and got the better of General Hardi last time at the track despite wandering around a bit up the run-in. He should cope with the step up in trip and despite a 7lb rise in the weights to a mark of 88, he could win again. Top-weight Roznic was well-fancied last month at Huntingdon but he could only fill third spot, and he has stamina to prove so despite a good strike-rate he is passed over. Stonerigg Merc's recent form has been poor but he may have needed those runs after a break so cannot be completely ruled out, along with course winners Almire Du Lia and Stravagain despite poor form on their latest runs. Bushido is well-treated on old form and most of the stable's runners are hitting the frame, however for the winner we will plump for Hall Of Fame.
