Barron Watlass comes here on the back of a win and so does Twentynineblack who won decently at Bangor last time out, but our pick is SIR FRANK who is a course and distance winner. Although bumped up in the weights today for that victory on the 29th May, Sir Frank has won two races in 2010 out of two outings and this has to be respected. He ran a tidy race and held on well towards the line and despite the higher mark should be able to prevail here. One of the main challenges may come in the form of Barron Watlass who beat Heart of Dubai (also a runner in this race) by half a length at Sedgefield. Penalised in the weights for that run, Barron Watlass may struggle to follow up in this contest. Twentynineblack won by an impressive seven lengths ahead of Grand Award when sent off favourite last time out. Jason Maguire retains the ride for this race and from only 5lbs higher could really pose dangers to our selection here. However we side with SIR FRANK to get to the line first today and bag a hat-trick of scores this season.
