Verdict

Lifetime disappointed at Sandown last time and has been expensive to follow. There's no guarantee he'll appreciate this step up in trip but it may well suit Flat winner GETABUZZ, who could only muster the one pace over 2m at Musselburgh on his latest start. He gets the nod though Brunello was second over this trip on the same card and should be thereabouts again. Hallmark Star hasn't sparkled in three runs this term and Silver Dragon has gone up a further 5lb since finishing third over 2m6f here early last month. All-weather specialist Bold Adventure is now a 10-year-old and has never won on Turf in 21 attempts.
