Verdict

Highland Acclaim won last year’s renewal off a higher mark though never threatened when third over 7f here last week. This is tougher than the race Aleef won at Hamilton last month and Jeopardy John and Roundabout Magic are also raised in class. Seprani won here last year and an apprentice’s allowance helps his cause but RELATED was beaten only a neck at Doncaster last time and gets the nod to come out best with a similar effort. George Dryden slides further down the weights and today’s drop in class could see a better effort from him.
