Verdict

The veteran Hever Road likes it around here but he's approaching fourteen and may just need the run. Noble Witness ran poorly at Uttoxeter last month but is better than that and should bounce back. Pairc Na Gcapall was beaten a long way when runner-up last time as was Nom de Guerre at Kempton so a chance is taken on RED ROUBLE, who was in very good form at this time a year ago and has dropped to a very lowly mark after a series of moderate efforts.
