Verdict

MR SUPREME is still a maiden over fences but this looks a good opportunity to put the record straight. A repeat of his second to The Panama Kid at Doncaster in January would probably suffice. Baltic Pathfinder never seems to run two races alike and has done all of his winning over shorter trips but stamina won't be a problem for Cara Court, who has won over 3m3f. He is also back on a winning mark and must be a danger but Ballyben has been well beaten in both starts over the larger obstacles so far. Chicago Outfit won at Kelso in October but failed to follow that up in three subsequent starts and has had a break.
