Verdict

Blazin White Face found this trip too far on heavy ground at Ayr last month but was second over 2m2f at Kelso last time. Avenging Ace needs to bounce back from a poor run at Ayr in February and Four Fiddlers was pulled up over further at Kelso last time and is starting to look exposed. Nigel Twiston-Davies' runners are always worth noting here and KRUZHLININ should get his raiding party this week off to a winning start as he need only reproduce the form of his latest second at Ascot to get the better of these.
