Verdict

Letemgo won over 2m4f here in October but has been beaten twice off today's higher mark since. Kartanian was third off a higher mark over course and distance last season but fell on his reappearance at Fontwell and then finished tailed off at Stratford. Keltic Rhythm has had plenty of chances and isn't getting any better but Rior's third at Towcester was a step up on previous efforts and he has a good chance of reversing earlier running with Letemgo. LUMPYS GOLD is unexposed and has only found one too good in two runs so far under Rules. He was clear of the third here two weeks ago and can go one better today.
