Verdict

CANADIAN DANEHILL may be a light of former years but the in-form Robert Cowell has coaxed the veteran nicely back to form of late and the gelding should be competitive here off a mark of just 50 under Jake Payne, with whom he gets on well. Argentine, just a couple of years younger at eight, also retains form and enthusiasm well. A winner on Fibresand this year, he handles all artificial surfaces well and should go close off a 4lb higher mark for that Southwell success. Thrice C&D winner Decider has been dropped 5lb for his last three efforts but wasn't beaten at all far by useful types in Royal Bajan and Jimmy Ryan the last twice.
