LETHAL GLAZE can land the finale at the main expense of Stanstill and Spiekeroog. The selection won well over this course and distance last time when he got the better of Rough Diamond. He has conditions to suit today and he can win again. Stanstill is in good form and he is looking for his third success on the bounce today. He won over 1m4f last time but he shapes as though he will get further and he looks well worth a try over today's trip. Spiekeroog won his maiden in decent style last time and he is another worth considering on his handicap debut. Final Victory is a consistent sort but he didn't quite get home over 1m6f last time and he may best watched on this occasion. This is an open finale but we will nominate Lethal Glaze to lead them home.
