MOUNT CHEIRON arrives in fine form having landed a double with a course and distance success last month- he should make another bold bid in his current mood. Whozthecat is also in good heart at present and an apprentice’s allowance negates a rise in the weights for winning over 7f at Thirsk while The Dukkerer has been threatening to get his head back in front of late. Anneani is another holding her form well but All The Rage drops back in trip from 1m4f and Virile steps up in distance having won over 6f here last month.
