Verdict

ENDLESS CREDIT has returned a losing favourite on his last couple of outings but was beaten only a nose at Nottingham last time. Luca Cumani's charge gets another chance racing off the same mark and dropping back in trip. Siouxperhero is upped in class as he bids for a four-timer so Haydock winner Express Himself is preferred after going close once again at Epsom last time. Knight Owl and Postscript look high enough in the weights and Ty Gwr makes a belated seasonal debut.
