Verdict

KILCASCAN wasn't disgraced over a longer trip at Warwick last time despite returning a losing favourite. He'd scored over 3m in soft ground at Uttoxeter before that and this looks no tougher. Better was expected from Hobb's Dream last time having made the frame on her comeback at Fontwell last month. She'll need a similar effort if she's to figure in this while course regular Overton Lad has failed to complete his last couple of starts but is still preferred to Billybo, who is having his first start since 2010.
