          Verdict

          Hazelrigg, who has won this twice, was due to run in the 2.40 here yesterday but has dropped to his lowest mark since 2010 so the result should be monitored closely. Mister Manannan likes it here and the combination of Dandy Nicholls and Kieren Fallon should ensure the seven-year-old is competitive. It appears best to be drawn on one side of the track or the other and Pea Shooter looks ideally berthed in stall three, though he's now gone up in the ratings twice without winning. Noble Asset is in the centre which doesn't look ideal but he gained many admirers with an all-the-way success at Musselburgh. The lightly-raced Distant Past also made all at Thirsk and a 4lb rise looks manageable but a very open handicap can go the way of BORIS GRIGORIEV. Mick Easterby's charge scored over the course and distance at last year's fixture and has had just two runs so far this season. He's only 4lb higher and looks to have as good a chance as any with Go Go Green, who was a bit unlucky in that latter event a year ago, a possibility for a place on the podium.
