Verdict

Donald McCain runs three but Son Of Flicka remains out of sorts and Across The Bay may need further to show his best. Stablemate Reindeer Dippin makes most appeal of the trio, therefore, after his second at Aintree last month but the progressive ATTAGLANCE is preferred. A winner at Carlisle in October, he finished third in better company over C&D last month and today's slower ground should suit. Sandown winner Pateese has to come into the reckoning after disappointing in a Grade 3 race at Cheltenham last time while Gambo, Moonlight Drive and Sir Tantallus Hawk are others to consider in an open affair. Afsoun has a first preference at Newcastle today.
