Verdict

INTIFADAH has a poor strike-rate but has run well in three of his four starts for the Skeltons and his turn may have come around again. Prolific Flat winner Chookie Royale is probably running out of time to make an impact over timber but has shown ability and has place claims again. Strong Team was second here in May and won at Perth last month but is 8lb higher now. Smart Ruler finished ahead of a few of these last time at Cartmel while Life Knowledge has been in fair form on the Flat this summer and could also play a part.
