Verdict

HELLBENDER has proven form on soft going and off a mark that is some way lower than that on an artificial surface, we take him to score again. Zaplamation ran well at Hamilton last time out and were the ground to dry out, he would make plenty of appeal on this occasion. Castle Myth is exposed though rider Dale Swift is performing at the top of his game. Morocchius has been something of a serial underachiever though it would be folly to rule him out. Rowan Lodge needs little introduction to followers of Northern racing and it is worth noting that his trainer won this last year. Tombellini is a son of Tomba so one would be very surprised if he weren't able to demonstrate improved form for a switch to this much slower surface.
