Verdict

A course regular, Lease Lend hasn't scored since winning this race last year off a higher mark. He's been thereabouts over these fences of late and should figure again but DUNOWEN POINT is preferred. The latter has won two of three starts over fences, including his latest at Sedgefield, and further progress is expected despite a 10lb rise. Kealigolane has slipped down the weights and has a shout off his current mark as does Havingotascoobydo, who will have come on for his recent comeback. Saveiro is out of form and makes less appeal.
