Verdict

Paul Nicholls has won this for the last three years so it seems foolish to oppose CAPTAIN COTTISTOCK, who is still on an upward curve judged on his latest third in a valuable novices’ handicap at Uttoxeter. Station Master is a stout stayer, however, and kept on for pressure last time at Hereford over a similar trip, though is rated 5lb inferior to the selection. The other pair may struggle to complete given past form.
