Verdict

Three-year-olds have a better-than-average record in this so Burauq has to be considered, despite his defeat at Wolverhampton where he's never run well. Excellent Aim is incredibly consistent but has gone up 5lb for his Southwell victory and has never won from a mark this high. SPINNING COBBLERS can take this as he won in similar grade here at the beginning of the month and is only 2lb higher. He comfortably reversed earlier running with Duke Of North, though the latter probably didn't run up to his best. Dawn Catcher is also held and has never won on an artificial surface and though Ghost Train scored here a fortnight ago he doesn't win very often. Humour hasn't quite been getting home over 7f and this is his trip but Zebs Lad does better at Wolverhampton.
