An uninspiring finale can go to CIVIL UNREST. He's the pick of James Ewart's two runners ahead of the disappointing Ange Des Malberaux, despite conceding weight and age to his rivals, having run respectably reverting to hurdles at Uttoxeter. Noble Call has a poor strike rate but has the past form to figure and makes more appeal than Miss Joeking, still 5lb higher than when scoring at Hexham in November.
