Verdict

There doesn't look a great deal between Mick Easterby's pair Aerodynamic and Special Mix with preference just for the latter. Dandy Nicholls and Tracy Waggott are other trainers doubly represented in this while there are possibilities about Newmarket third Sardanapalus and the 10-year-old The Osteopath, third at Thirsk last week. But it's about time JONNY LESTERS HAIR was winning another one of these. It's almost two years since Tim Easterby's charge was last in the winner's enclosure but he's 15lb lower now and seems to like it here. Skyfire did finish ahead of the selection last time but that was a messy affair and he may not be able to confirm that form.
