Verdict

The softer ground has seen Diddy Eric hit form with a vengeance and he's on a hat-trick after victories at Newcastle and Carlisle, though has a penalty to carry in this. Amazing Blue Sky won over course and distance in June and is starting to look well handicapped again but Carlisle scorer Midnight Warrior tries a new trip, as does Pim Street and the three-year-old Rokeby. GRAND LIAISON won twice in heavy ground in 2012 so conditions won't be a problem. She's been showing signs of a revival lately and this is a drop in class so James Given's mare gets the nod.
