Verdict

Two For Gold is penalised for making a winning start over fences at Carlisle and has a bit to find on these terms with AYE RIGHT on form over hurdles. Harriet Graham’s charge has won five times over timber from only 12 attempts and also has the beating of Coole Hall at the weights if proving as effective over the larger obstacles. The latter will be sharper for a recent comeback run at Wetherby while Cairnshill unseated last time but has placed over fences on more than one occasion and is preferred to Ard Chros and Gipsy Lee Rose.
