Blindingly is on a similar mark to when successful at Thirsk and Newcastle last year but the veteran B Fifty Two seems best at Catterick nowadays. Redrosezorro has solid claims but Be Proud was only fifth when favourite at Newcastle three weeks ago and is 0-13 on Turf. MR WAGYU hung under pressure when third at Thirsk but could land this if Joe Fanning is able to keep him on the straight and narrow.
