Verdict

Twoways has his ground again and is on a hat-trick after victories at Towcester and Carlisle. He'll be thereabouts if handling this sharper track while Keel Haul is in good form but has been raised 8lb for winning at Warwick and may need a stiffer test. Midnight Thunder came up against an improver here last month and should be winning soon but we'll give another chance to FASCINO RUSTICO. Going well when falling two out here last time, he would have easily finished ahead of eventual fifth Benbecula and is having only his third start over timber. Easily Pleased may need this and will be back over fences shortly.
