Verdict

Teddy Tee doesn't have much in the way of pace but battles on and today's conditions are certain to suit over this trip. He's had a couple of months off since a fine run at Newcastle and will take some beating. However, he has to concede weight to PRESENT FLIGHT and that may prove beyond him. The latter has a victory over this trip to his credit and was having his first start since April 2016 when an excellent second here last month. Gold Opera has been competing at a higher level but has been badly out of form, as have Presented and Onderun, but Lowandbehold stays extreme distance as he showed when scoring over 4m at Hexham in December.
