Verdict

Both of Brian Meehan's runners in this have experience but Pivot Point didn't really improve much on his first start at Salisbury when fourth at Yarmouth. Duke Of North may have more scope but one of the debutants could come out on top. Richard Hannon's juveniles are always worth a second look and Cool Strutter, who runs in the Qatar Racing Club colours, is no exception while Rise To Power is a half-brother to a winning miler. But BICKERSHAW is more speedily bred and might be more effective over this trip - he gets the nod.
