Verdict

KNIGHT IN DUBAI easily outpointed the odds-on Ballymoy at Bangor and should comfortably defy his penalty in this with a similar effort even though a switch to fences at Catterick clearly suited Schiehallion Munro. Vinnie The Hoddie didn’t get far at Kempton after a second at Wincanton but his stable is in good form and he could play a part receiving 6lb from the two previous winners if his confidence hasn’t taken a jolt. It would be a bigger shock if either Eskendash or Est Illic were to prove successful.
