Verdict

This is generally won by a three-year-old but Adam's Ale almost pulled off a shock victory at Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and looks certain to get into the shake-up. Lord Ashley didn't show much on his debut at Leicester a year ago but he's the type to do better this season though it will be a surprise if he can trouble NORDIKHAB after such a long absence. The latter looks the one to be on after several fine efforts in his first campaign and his overall form will make him difficult to beat. Teetotal has found testing conditions against him on his most recent starts and today's ground should prove ideal.
