Verdict

This won't take much winning and Craiglands must go on the short-list, despite a long losing run. He's been placed in better company of late and has form over the track and trip. Top Benefit was third in the race last year off a 14lb higher mark but hasn't shown much lately and Caspian Piper has done little over fences so far. I Know The Code was third over 2m6f here last month, though still beaten 20 lengths. WITCH'S HAT has only managed one career win in 21 starts but likes it here and doesn't look badly treated- he gets a tentative vote.
