      Verdict

      Ebony Rose has only won at Perth so far but she wasn't entirely disgraced in a Class 3 handicap at Hexham last time and has claims in this. BUCKLED won over course and distance in March and was always travelling best when scoring over a shorter trip at Kelso last month - he looks capable of defying a 5lb rise. Waltz Darling hasn't won in almost two years but has been second twice at Market Rasen recently and The Wise On could figure if fully wound-up. Maraweh, like the latter, likes it here but needs to rediscover his best form.
