Verdict

SCALES probably hasn't progressed as expected and has tipped up a couple of times but this is arguably his easiest task to date and he was third on soft ground over 2m1f here last time. With Michael Nolan again taking off 5lb, he looks the one to beat. Think Its All Over won four times on the Flat but has disappointed so far over timber while North London has gone backwards since finishing fourth at Wincanton on Boxing Day. Revaader's run here last time was a step up and the extra half-mile clearly suited so she could play a part today.
