Ninjago has been in good form over the summer and finished in front of Carlovian when successful over track and trip last month. But he’d earlier been beaten by HARD SOLUTION in a selling race at Catterick and the latter is taken to confirm running with today’s amateur taking 7lb off his back. Mr Greenlight finished runner-up in one of these events at Thirsk earlier in the month while Cosmic Chatter has tumbled down the weights since winning last year’s renewal under a different rider.
