Verdict

Royal Trooper has been raised 13lb after finishing runner-up on his last couple of starts and his chance may have gone. Rose Red has also gone up the weights for finishing second though she still has plenty of scope. Argaum's latest placed effort came in a seller and Sendiym made the frame in a chase at Cartmel recently. CLAUDE CARTER unseated after a blunder at Sedgefield last time when sent off favourite but he's taken to make amends in this with a clear round and gets the nod. Prickles would have preferred softer ground on his return to action.
