Verdict

The jumpers take centre stage for the final four races and STRUMBLE HEAD can repeat his triumph in this contest in 2012 off a pound lower mark. This is his time of year and he usually runs well on the track. Spanish Optimist won at Uttoxeter last month and was then third on the same track but has gone up another couple of pounds since. Comehomequietly showed a bit more at Stratford last time but Islandmagee and Sun Tzu have become disappointing and the other pair step up a grade for this.
