Verdict

Absa Lutte is only 2lb higher than when dead-heating at Nottingham two weeks ago but is possibly better over the minimum nowadays. Red Roar's best form is also over 5f and Kingswinford makes more appeal. He is back on a winning mark and has been in decent form this year, albeit over 7f. Sir Nod wouldn't be without a chance on his best form and could be the danger to NOT MY CHOICE. John Egan gets on particularly well with the six-year-old and has partnered him to four of his five career wins. He makes more appeal than plater Orpenindeed and Itsthursdayalready, who is 5lb higher than when successful at Southwell.
