Verdict

Simply Lucky has little chance and is easily dismissed while the remaining trio all carry a double penalty. But ONE FOR ARTHUR was also penalised when scoring easily over track and trip last month and beat today's rival and subsequent winner Subtle Grey five lengths at Haydock before that. Lucinda Russell's charge gets the nod to confirm superiority in this, despite the worse terms. Warriors Tale landed a handicap at Kelso last time but it's no surprise to see him back in novice company here given he was raised 17lb for that success.
