Verdict

Cayman Islands was ridden aggressively at Musselburgh last time over a longer trip but had nothing more to give when God's Own went past approaching the second-last and was beaten more than 20 lengths. It's possible the drop back in trip will suit but he doesn't make much appeal at the likely odds. OTTERBURN was racing for the first time in two years when fifth to Top Gamble at Ffos Las. He'll strip fitter here and may just find the improvement to get off the mark, though ex-pointer Ballyculla is another with scope. Clowance House hasn't been seen since June of last year and Your Tepee Or Mine was a big disappointment in a Sandown bumper in November while Rain Mac needs to improve on his hurdles form so far.
