Verdict

Faster ground is a real worry for the hat-trick seeking Hold Em Cowboy and recent Wetherby winner Fentara would also have preferred softer going. Firebird Flyer is still creeping up the weights but recent course and distance winner Lamboro Lad is worth a second look, though is closely matched with Fiddlers Reel. Raajih won by eight lengths at Kilbeggan last month but the handicapper has had his say since. GUESS AGAIN hasn't had much racing but showed what he was capable of when beating a decent field at Worcester last time. Conditions are in his favour again and he should prove tough to beat if in the same mood. Man With Van was due to run yesterday at Hexham.
