Verdict

Highwaygrey is a real course specialist who is only a pound higher than when second in this 12 months ago. Living Legend was all at sea on easier going at Doncaster 12 days ago and should fare better here. Bowland Park has won twice over a mile this year but has stamina to prove over this trip. TIGER BEETLE has been coming up against some useful types in novice and maiden company. A mark of 81 on his handicap debut should be manageable.
