Verdict

Castlerock hasn't raced since early June but the champion still prefers him to I Can Run Can You, who won twice in the spring. Bulwark could be interesting with a couple of recent runs on the Flat under his belt and makes more appeal than the disappointing Word Of Warning. Paddy The Hare doesn't appear to find much off the bridle and Consulate may have too much weight now while Rossbrin and Giant O Murchu return from a break. WHAT'S OCCURIN won over this trip at Market Rasen last month and looks to be back on track now. He's been harshly treated by the handicapper but, with question marks hanging over most of his rivals, is probably worth sticking with here.
