Hotham gained a shock victory in this a year ago and though running poorly at present don't be surprised by a return to form as he's an incredible 16lb lower in the weights. Matthew Lawson's claim will be a big help to Another Try, who continues in excellent shape and ran another very good race at Epsom last time. Dandy Nicholls has a superb record in this so the fact that his only entry is recent Hamilton claimer winner Saucy Brown could prove significant. RIVER FALCON continues to deny the years and beat a big field at Thirsk in May. He ran even better when a very good fourth behind Entitled over this C&D last month when Caranbola was behind and is taken to gain the ninth victory of his long career.
