Verdict

BURNS NIGHT handles fast ground and can race off the same mark as when going close at Fakenham last time. He gets the vote ahead of Auberge, who is also expected to do better returning to a more suitable surface. Benmadigan scored over a shorter trip here at this time last year and is only 2lb higher while Knight Woodsman has every chance on the back of a recent third over track and trip. Wetherby winner Tears From Heaven is worth noting on his return to action and Pudsey House has the past form to figure.
