Verdict

The drop in grade will suit THE TWO AMIGOS who hasn’t quite progressed as expected this year but has still run some sound races in hotter company than he faces here. Caught the eye in the Haydock Grand National Trial last time out and he’s taken to get back to winning ways in this company. Pobbles Bay was behind the suggestion last time but he too is given an easier task with his mark now easing to approach his last winning one. Fort Gabriel arrives on the back of two solid Ludlow performances and although his mark now looks stiff enough he should go well along with course winner Dawson City who needs to bounce back from a poor display last time.
  1. The Two Amigos
