Verdict

Lough Coi's form figures last season look impressive but he was usually well beaten and the handicapper is reluctant to give him much rope. BISHOPHILL JACK has been dropped 12lb since winning over course and distance just under a year ago. He's not exactly reliable but will probably never get a better chance to end his losing run. Von Galen and veteran Overton Lad are others who have gone well here in the past while Classic Case won over 2m4f here in November and is closely matched with the selection on a subsequent run. Ifonlyalfie looks best of the rest.
