Verdict

Strathaird has no chance at the weights but the remainder can all be fancied. EDMUND was having only his second start over fences when comfortably beating Mumgos Debut over this track and trip. An 8lb rise looks a bit harsh but he's progressive and should take care of the runner-up and complete a double. Turf Trivia isn't badly treated though may be undone by the conditions but Decent Lord loves heavy ground and he's won over hurdles here in very testing ground. He ran his best race to date over fences at Southwell last time and looks a threat. Prince Tam reserves his best for this track and four of his five victories have come here.
