Verdict

Seventeen entries here and all bar three are trained in Yorkshire including six from Dandy Nicholls, who has won four of the last 10 renewals including with Indian Trail two years ago when he caught today's rival Captain Dunne in the dying strides. The latter is in by far the better form of the pair and will make a bold bid to defy his big weight. No favourite has won in the last nine runs and Bertoliver, successful a year ago, was a 33/1 chance. Nicholls' best chance may lie with Fathom Five, a winner here last April and having the best of the draw. Kevin Ryan has his horses in tremendous form he's triple-handed here and while Oldjoesaid and the reappearing Perfect Blossom are respected it's MASAMAH, who blasted home at York a couple of weeks ago for which he is penalised 4lb, who gets the vote in a typical Epsom sprint.
