Race Verdict

SADDLERS DEAL is competitively weighted at present as he scored off this mark over a similar trip at Southwell last year. His recent Bangor third served notice that a return to winning ways was imminent and he's thus taken to get the better of last year's winner Soul Magic, who remains 7lb above his last winning mark, and Pumboo, a fair second over track and trip on his penultimate outing.

Selection: Saddlers Deal        Danger: Soul Magic        Alternative: Pumboo
