Verdict

Henry Candy's NORTH CAPE has shown improved form in his last two outings and looks worth backing to resume winning ways having been raised just 3lb for his narrow defeat behind Topolski in a similar contest over course and distance last month. Neil King's Chain Of Events has been running similarly well to the selection but is probably better over slightly shorter, while Willie Muir's Resplendent Light was fairly well held when second in a weaker race than this at Brighton. Jim Boyle's Rowan Tiger has harshly gone up 5lb for his win at Ffos Las last month and of more interest may be John Dunlop's Munsarim, who steps up in trip today and that may bring about improvement.
