Verdict

King Of Paradise won by five lengths over a longer trip at Hamilton last month and Danehill Flyer got off the mark here last time, though also over further. The latter has a penalty to carry in this so we're going to take him on with YORKSHIREMAN. This is a big step up in trip for David Brown's three-year-old but his dam won over 1m4f and also over hurdles so there is no reason to suspect he won't stay and he won on heavy ground here as a juvenile. Rock Song disappointed at Haydock last time but had been in good form prior to that run and is preferred to the Johnston pair Queen's Estate and Circle Of Angels.
