Verdict

Presenting Arms won an all-weather bumper on his return to action and should go well. Leviathan was still in contention when falling at Taunton last time and should be in the mix with a clear round. Canadian Diamond has a shout on his recent second at Ludlow but a speculative vote goes to stablemate SONORAN SANDS. He'll have come on from his reappearance in a jumpers bumper, his first start since 2012, and is 8lb lower than when last winning. Red Admirable was beaten less than a length in a blanket finish at Market Rasen last time but Red Skipper remains 11lb higher than his latest victory. Scots Gaelic is another to consider in a wide-open contest.
