Verdict

BELLEROPHON left previous form well behind when storming home on good ground at Kelso last week. He looks more than capable of defying a penalty dropped in grade here. Solway Dornal alternates between hurdles and fences but is only a pound higher than when scoring at Sedgefield two runs ago and has to be respected. Cumbrian Farmer won at Catterick in December when Tweedo Paradiso was only fourth. But Rose Dobbin's charge could reverse that form on better terms, though seems best over shorter distances. Vodka Red tries a new trip but Foot The Bill has won over further. However, the latter is better known as a chaser nowadays.
