Verdict

Gordon Elliott's yard shows little sign of emerging from the doldrums so Bouggietopieces is passed over here. Former Elliott inmate Manger Hanagment has plenty to prove at present but Shine A Diamond is starting to look well treated and will be happier back over fences. STROBE has already won four times over this course and distance and came right back to form at Bangor last month. He's 6lb higher but Adam Nicol is good value for his 3lb claim and Lucy Normile's charge looks the one to beat.
