Verdict

Some old favourites face the starter here and three of them arrive off the back of recent wins. I'M THE DECIDER normally takes a while to warm to his task but his defeat of Double Chocolate at Stratford has been franked and he may well have the race run to suit here. Jonjo O'Neill's gelding looks a better bet than No Panic and Michigan Assassin but it will be interesting to see if there's any money for useful hurdler Henry Hook back over fences while Bold Perk likes it around here. Tasheba needs some help from the handicapper, however, and Vincitore and Intac may also have too much weight while Pyracantha regularly finds at least one too good, as does Battlecry.
