Verdict

Basford Ben finally got off the mark over course and distance earlier this month, beating Shouldavboughtgold by two lengths despite some sketchy jumping with Lord Fox fourth and Whiskey Ridge pulled up. There shouldn't be much between the first two on today's revised terms, however. Mr Supreme and Brandon Thomas will both have benefited from comeback runs and have the ability to figure but CLONDAW FLICKA has taken well to fences and impressed when stepped up to 3m at Doncaster. He can defy a 6lb rise in the weights.
