Verdict

This looks quite competitive for a claimer with improving top weight MY LORD chasing a hat-trick after back-to-back victories over this trip at Wolverhampton - there's no reason why he shouldn't take to this sharper track. Eternal Youth has his first start for new connections on the back of a handicap win at Dundalk but stablemate Local Diktator hasn't much to recommend him and Theavonfilly also has something to prove. Of the Stan Moore pair, Sir Lunchalott is probably the more consistent, though Ryan Powell's 5lb claim will aid the cause of Silence Is Bliss over this longer trip.
