Verdict

Dansili Dutch won under today's apprentice at Hamilton last time and is up 5lb but Staffhoss ended a long losing run when successful at Musselburgh and remains well treated on his best form. He makes more appeal than the frustrating Ewell Place, third over track and trip last month. But PADDY'S ROCK is one of the least exposed and was beaten less than a length at Hamilton last time. Luke Leadbitter's allowance could make the difference in this and he gets the vote.
