Verdict

Hawk Mountain is a couple of pounds out of the handicap but goes well here and John Quinn has booked the in-form Darryll Holland. Shock Northumberland Plate winner Tominator will do well to follow up with a 6lb rise over the shorter trip on faster ground and it would be no surprise to see Deauville Flyer, who finished third at Newcastle, reverse the form. Fox Hunt tackles this trip for the first time but has looked a pattern race performer recently and must be a threat to all though ROCK A DOODLE DOO, who was unlucky in-running when fourth to him at Ascot, can gain revenge and take this on the revised terms. Tactician, runner-up to Mount Athos in the Melrose over the C&D last August, ran well on his comeback at Newmarket and is another to consider.
