Verdict

A prolific winner for Archie Watson since landing this race last year, CAPTAIN LARS looks to have every chance again on these terms. He won a seller at Newcastle on his penultimate start and winning partner Tom Greatrex is back on board. It Must Be Faith has a weight advantage with Drakefell though hasn’t won over the minimum trip for some time now and the latter may come out best of that pair while Excel Mate looks to have an impossible task but is guaranteed prize money.
