Verdict

Simon Walker rode Los Nadis to win this last year. The latter has since changed stables and is 7lb higher today but Walker could win this again on WESTLIN' WINDS. A runner-up over today's trip at Newcastle last month, he looks up to going one better in this company. Zefooha scored over 1m6f at Redcar last time but has yet to win over today's distance, while Via Archimede won at Leopardstown the last time he raced on the Flat though he's been well beaten over hurdles in the meantime.
