Verdict

The veteran Follow The Flag is one of only two previous course and distance winners but hasn't been at his best of late. Favorite Girl won over track and trip last year but is 5lb higher today while course winners Monzino and Royal Holiday will find today's distance far enough. Leicester winner Monopoli has decent claims if taking to the Fibresand but BLADES LAD looks a safer bet. He finished a creditable third on his debut at the track earlier this month and 7lb lower than when scoring at Ripon last season, Peter Niven's charge gets the nod.
