Verdict

Global Village was narrowly beaten in last year's Lincoln after a spin on the all-weather. He should be thereabouts along with Brae Hill, also placed in the 2013 Lincoln having won it the previous year. Boots And Spurs is 12lb higher than when beaten a head in this race last term but Dance And Dance has dropped in the weights and will take advantage before long. A 9lb rise brought an end to Tellovoi's winning run on the all-weather while winning sprinter Farlow attempts this longer trip for the first time. Dream Walker showed progressive form with four wins last season and Gworn has scope for further improvement. The latter would have been the selection if drawn high, but STAND MY GROUND may prove better value. David O'Meara's charge was rated 16lb higher when placed over track and trip last April and won in soft ground when trained in France.
