    Verdict

    This is another dire contest and Keon is given a tentative vote ahead of Cut Ridge and Four Amigos. Reg Hollinshead's four-year-old gained a deserved victory over this trip at Southwell last time, travelling smoothly and he found enough under pressure inside the last to keep his pursuers at bay. There could be more to come and he looks the best option here. Cut Ridge also hit winning form last time out, beating Vibrato in good style at Musselburgh. She doesn't have too much experience of the all-weather but in this mood has to be respected. Four Amigos hails from a stable in form and has a squeak on the pick of this season's efforts. The best of the rest could be Atwirl, but Keon won with a little bit in hand last time and can follow up this afternoon.
