        Verdict

        Mojolika arrives on the back of a couple of recent wins over hurdles and may well get involved off his current mark. Vimiero and Scribe have been in good form on the Polytrack and Eagle Rock has a shout if on a going day. Brasingaman Eric finished ahead of previous course and distance winner Maid Of Meft when runner-up at Musselburgh last month while Ministerofinterior will have come on for his recent reappearance at Nottingham. Riptide was placed over the marathon 2m6f here on his penultimate start but it could pay to stick with OUR FOLLY given he's produced a late flourish to score over 2m on his last couple of starts and this longer trip should be within his compass.
