Verdict

Leath Acra Mor still has his stamina to prove over this longer trip, as does Dartford Warbler, but American Legend won over 3m3f at Newton Abbot on his reappearance and is only 4lb higher here. PURE FAITH has been a reformed character lately and shaped nicely back over hurdles at Newton Abbot. He's been dropped a couple of pounds since and has won off similar marks over fences so should make his presence felt and looks the pick of these with High Ville raised a harsh-looking 11lb since finishing second in a four-runner race at Uttoxeter.
