Elgin is a high-class hurdler and he has been successful at Chelmsford and Catterick on the Flat in recent months. The concern regarding his chance is the forecast good to firm ground and with that in mind, preference is for HAMADA. The son of Cape Cross arrives having won a competitive handicap at York in May and the second from that contest was only beaten a neck in the Old Newton Cup last weekend, off a 3lb higher mark. That evidence suggests that this lightly-raced four-year-old may be underestimated by a rating of 96, especially as the extra couple of furlongs today may bring about further improvement. Natural Scenery was disappointing in the Northumberland Plate but it is too soon to be writing her off.
ELGIN scored with plenty in hand for the second time in this sphere at Catterick last month, and there’s every chance his opening mark could underestimate him given his very smart form over hurdles. Hamada remains lightly raced and is likely to improve further, while Saunter may benefit from a return to this trip.
