Verdict

Nashville's close second to Moidore on soft ground here last month was a good effort but he could have done without a 3lb rise though he didn't run badly in a better race at Musselburgh subsequently when Entihaa was behind. RAYADOUR and Rumble Of Thunder fought a duel at Ripon three weeks ago with the former just hanging on. Both had been in excellent form over timber during the winter and it looks like a 1-2 again with the former taken to confirm the positions.
