Verdict

Overton Lad is a standing dish around here but isn't getting any younger. Rifleman is already a teenager and likely to find at least a couple too good again, while Shock N Freaney's record under Rules leaves a lot to be desired. Douglas won at Fontwell in August, however, while Halucha is lightly raced over fences and scored over hurdles here in May. QUAYSIDE COURT won over course and distance in March off a 2lb higher mark. Faster ground may help him rediscover his best so he gets a tentative vote, though most of these are capable of winning a race like this on their day.
