Verdict

Big Time Billy has won again over hurdles since scoring at Ripon earlier this month. He makes more appeal than recent course and distance winner Rock Relief as the latter would prefer softer ground. CAPELLANUS had a disappointing Activate well behind when scoring at Musselburgh last time and as this doesn't look any tougher so Jim Goldie's charge gets the vote to follow up. Bumper winner Mister Pagan opened his account on the Flat over a shorter trip at Ayr on his latest start and is preferred to Mohawk Ridge and Wyborne, winners over 1m4f earlier this year.
