Verdict

Anything Paul Cole saddles on the Knavesmire is worth a look and recent Polytrack winner Red Courtier should be noted though he'll need to improve again. Bollin Judith and Hawk Mountain both love it around here and fought out a tremendous battle over the C&D last month with the former just prevailing. It will be no surprise to see either scoring here whole Old Hundred is a progressive stayer who has gone very well over Doncaster's marathon trip in the past and should be suited here. Bow To No One couldn't peg back the shock winner French Hollow over 1m6f here earlier this month but will be fancied to go one better this time though the real eye-catcher that day was SPIEKEROOG. Formerly with Sir Henry Cecil, he's had his problems and is now with David O'Meara who has done so well with similar types this season that his five-year-old gets the vote to start making up for lost time.
