Tweedo Paradiso was second here off today's mark three runs ago but has gone backwards since. Highland Love is struggling for his best form while Pete appears to have lost his confidence but Brother Scott may be worth another chance after unseating his rider at Wetherby last time and Copt Hill won here in January. AGRICULTURAL will enjoy the drying ground and is back in the right grade following his sixth at Kelso. He's gone well here in the past and is handicapped to go close again off a mark of 95 and preferred to veteran Prize Fighter.
