    In depth

    Verdict

    Most of these are out of form including Kayfton Pete, who won here in April but finished last of four at Southwell last month. Kitchapoly also ran poorly at the same venue last time though today's drop in trip should suit while Formal Bid hasn't been in the best of form over hurdles. TOWN MOUSE scored at Fontwell in April and is only 2lb higher. This is a poor finale and he can concede weight all round though Spock would be one to note if attracting support after a very long absence.
