Race Verdict

Paradise Expected has been raised 7lb for his win over 3m here last month but that form has been advertised by the runner-up since and he should go well again. However, CARDIGAN ISLAND was hit with a 9lb rise for his Southwell win in November but he is open to improvement and just edges the call. Wait No More has gone up 5lb for his win last month but he could not be ruled out with confidence whilst support for any of the Bernard Llewellyn-trained trio would make them of interest.

Selection: Cardigan Island        Danger: Paradise Expected        Alternative: Wait No More
