Verdict

AARON LAD let down favourite backers on his trip to Catterick last time but will surely be winning a handicap soon and today could be time to catch Dr Richard Newland's seven-year-old. Brian Hughes is a positive booking in the saddle and the gelding should have too much for course and distance winner and nearest rival Danceintothelight, who is still 1lb higher than when landing that track success. Valgor Du Ronceray has a monster weight to carry, so it may be best to look towards Philip Kirby's Rock Of Leon when considering the other options.

Verdict

A last flight mistake stopped AARON LAD making more of a fist of things when runner-up at Catterick 10 days ago, yet his overall performance highlighted he's well up to winning races in this sphere and he can go one place better now. Judge Earle and Nicely Indeed are next best.
