Verdict

Drop The Hammer has produced three moderate efforts over timber and has been in poor form on the Flat recently. Saddlers Mot hasn't been showing much between the flags and has a big weight to carry while Power Flow also looks too high in the handicap. Cornish Castle is yet to reach a place in 15 starts over timber so by process of elimination this poor contest can go to SEAM OF DIAMONDS, a bumper winner on fast ground at Uttoxeter last summer and a possible improver over hurdles.
