Verdict

Eastlake won this last year but subsequent exploits means that he lines up this season off a 23lb higher mark. Rebel Rebellion won the Grand Sefton at Aintree last time but may not be as effective back on a conventional track and over a shorter trip while Kumbeshwar turned in a shocker at Cheltenham last week behind Wishfull Thinking. Desert Cry beat GREY GOLD by seven lengths at Wetherby last month with Filbert fourth and Oscar Hill last of the eight finishers. The runner-up is 8lb better off here and can turn the tables and gain a deserved first success of the season as Pepite Rose is probably high enough in the weights now.
