Verdict

Jokers And Rogues won here in April and made a bold bid to make all in a better race at Sedgefield a month ago so should be ready for this. Martila completed a double at Cartmel in mid-summer and though beaten a long way from her new mark here last month that was a better race. Nine Altars was in excellent form in the spring and won a handicap here before failing to sparkle over fences at Cartmel. But ARTHURS SECRET has a victory over hurdles at Musselburgh to his credit and has been in very good form on the Flat this summer so looks the one to be on.
