Verdict

Nicholascopernicus had slipped down the weights before scoring at Windsor but has shot straight back up again. Border Legend never looked like following up his win at Newbury at Doncaster last time but maiden winners Saab Almanal and Mount Shamsan are both open to further progress. The lightly-raced Ghaawy bids for a hat-trick on his belated return to action while No Win No Fee steps up in class after winning at Nottingham. ELHAAME has finished got closer with every run this season. The drop back to today's trip seemed to suit at Haydock last time and he can return to winning ways in this.
