          Verdict

          Teetotal won this as a three-year-old back in 2013 and has been successful three times over track and trip in total. Nigel Tinkler's charge beat a subsequent winner at Thirsk two runs ago and would be a threat to all if in the same mood. But it's difficult to knock the efforts of MR ORANGE this year and Paul Midgley's three-year-old, another course specialist, is fancied to get back to winning ways having showed himself to be competitive off this mark when second at Redcar. Picks Pinta was only raised a pound for winning at Hamilton but this is a better race. Mon Brav is capable at this level but the others appear to have some improving to do.
