Verdict

Alqaahir has run well in the main since winning here in the spring and has to be on the short-list at this level with a draw in 13 to his advantage with Mataram, Flying Valentino and Unlimited others to bear in mind. Rain On The Wind is sure to be popular as he attempts to try and make all from his high draw and he holds an obvious chance but this trip has just seemed to stretch him thus far so a better option, each-way, may be HAVING A BALL. Peter Cundell's charge needs a strong pace and luck in running as he's usually held-up but he regularly hits the frame over this course and distance, has won for Chris Catlin and holds an obvious chance at the weights.
