Verdict

Down Royal winner Finea was scheduled to run yesterday at Ayr. It took Bollin Line 15 attempts to get off the mark and a 7lb weight rise won't help the Catterick scorer. Oscar Lateen won easily at Newcastle but much faster ground here is a concern and he's also gone up 7lb. ITSTIMEFORAPINT won over 3m here in December but jumped poorly on a return visit. Hopefully a spin over hurdles will have restored some confidence as he has the ability to defy top weight in a race like this.
