Verdict

Joe Eile has his sights lowered and a visor could help him recapture former glories. He's easily the pick of the weights but may be on a downward spiral. Cape Of Hope was only beaten a neck at Wolverhampton last month but LLEWELLYN looks to have a decent chance of going one better than last year as he's now rated 5lb higher. David Nicholls also runs the veteran Tajneed and he usually runs well in this grade but course and distance winners Solar Spirit and Viking Warrior have a bit to find on these terms.
