Verdict

It's difficult to make a case at the weights here for either the returning Reel Weld or recent C&D runner-up The Society Man but the remaining quartet all have some sort of chance. Red Jade probably needs a bit further nowadays, however, while King Fingal never seems to get much luck in this type of race and can also be a tricky ride. Gordon Elliott has already mounted a couple of successful raids to England with Oscar Hill and will be eyeing up the hat-trick but NOT TIL MONDAY will enjoy this ground and, with AP McCoy doing the steering, the six-year-old can land this seller.
