Verdict

Orsipuss is 2lb higher than when winning last year's renewal but is fit from hurdling and should go well. Cloudy Spirit is 5lb higher than when scoring over today's trip at York last season and KAZBOW has been raised a further 7lb after winning over a longer trip here last time. However, that may not be enough to prevent Richard Ford's charge landing a four-timer if he gets his own way up front and he's preferred to Art History. The latter went close when stepped up to 2m at Wolverhampton recently while Herostatus is back on a winning mark and could also figure with a comeback run at York under his belt.
