Verdict

ISTHEREADIFFERENCE finally got his act together at Ffos Las last month and may be capable of defying a 5lb weight rise in this. Hopstrings is consistent and looks a danger as she's won a point-to-point over this longer trip but Spice Hill has had plenty of chances under Rules. Ballycool is another who has won over 3m between the flags but he hasn't raced since April and Antihero has his first start since finishing second at Fakenham in June, though has more scope than the one-paced Blackstone Vegas.
