Three of these arrive in winning form and it's one of the trio, COPT HILL, who can complete the double. He's only five and had shown very little before gaining a surprise victory in a Sedgefield handicap where he made all for a convincing victory. He's been raised 7lb, which looks fair enough, and a follow-up looks on the cards. The veteran Prize Fighter was a long way out of the handicap and a 100/1 chance when scoring at Wetherby where he was a bit fortunate while King Kalium has been raised 7lb for winning a minor handicap at Ayr. Bunratty has yet to win and has found one too good on three occasions and Northern Acres hasn't shown much in two starts since returning from a break.
