Verdict

ODIN'S RAVEN has improved with every run over timber, finishing a long way clear of debutant Twisted and It's A Mans World when winning over C&D on his third start last month before narrowly failing to defy a big weight in a novices' handicap over a slightly longer trip here three weeks ago. He looks the one to beat again today. Ancient Times was runner-up in a modest heat at Perth last September but hasn't shone on the all-weather since. Ursus is more exposed but was a fair fourth in a handicap at Wetherby earlier this month and looks the pick of the remainder.
