Race Verdict

It could pay to side with GEORGE WOOLF. The form of his runner-up effort over 2m4f at Hereford looks rock solid with the first and fourth both winning since and the way he finished off that race suggests that this extra furlong can only help. Dirty Bertie showed a likeable attitude when landing the spoils at Fontwell last time but an 8lb rise looks harsh, so course winner Dipity Doo Dah is most feared from lower down the weights.

Selection: George Woolf        Danger: Dipity Doo Dah        Alternative: Dirty Bertie
