Verdict

Cool Roxy has been a standing dish around here for many a season but his advancing years have been catching up with him lately and the old boy is likely to find a few of these rivals too good. Pilgrims Lane won over 3m2f at Ludlow 10 days ago and is one for the short-list, while Knight Legend has tumbled down the ratings but only won a seller over hurdles here last month. Moon Over Miami looks to be on the downgrade and Oscar Royal was well beaten at Bangor last month, though should strip fitter here. SARAHS GIFT looks the one to beat, however, having won easily over C&D last time. He loves the fast ground and is still on a decent mark.
