Verdict

Lucinda Russell runs three in this and the consistent Kai Broon seems sure to be thereabouts again, though he's still 9lb higher than when scoring at Kelso in April. Stablemate BEIDH TINE ANSEO has cost supporters plenty since rattling up a hat-trick over hurdles in May 2010 but he's unexposed over fences and potentially well treated on his third at Kelso in May. The six-year-old can finally come good here. Wikaala appears to have lost his way but former stable companion Definite All Star has claims if reproducing his best and is preferred to top weight Dica.
