Verdict

Bibbidibobbidiboo won a seller at Catterick before going in again over 7f at Musselburgh but is upped 7lb today. ROUND THE ISLAND is preferred as he won off a higher mark over course and distance at this time last year and finished in front of Araqeel, Major Crispies and Alfie's Angel when fourth back here last time. Crosse Fire was placed over 5f at the track recently but is better on the all-weather while though Grandad's World will surely take advantage of a slide down the weights before long he looks no nearer to doing so just yet.
