Verdict

AWARD WINNER only ever wins when AP McCoy is in the saddle, as was the case over 3m here in July. A 4lb higher mark isn't restrictive and Brendan Powell's enigmatic 10-year-old could take all the beating again taking on largely out-of-form rivals. Silver Dragon was made favourite at Hexham last week and only found one too good. He races off the same mark and should be thereabouts again while Word Of Warning was the subject of a gamble at Worcester last month, though disappointed. Nicene Creed may just need this but Inside Knowledge will lack nothing in fitness and Garry Woodward's course and distance winner looks the pick of the remainder.
