2 pts win JUST A PAR 7/1 ( 7/1 or bigger with at least 6 firms)
1 pt win VALLEYOFMILAN 20/1 (everywhere)
Edinburgh National

Just A Par races off the same rating as when just touched off for a second Whitbread back in April. He's had one outing since which he'll no doubt come on for and today's ground will be absolutely ideal for him. Overall, everything is going for him here and he warrants support.

Valleyofmilan is another who is ideally suited by the ground not being too soft and he lines up here in great heart. He unseated at his only previous attempt at this sort of trip but has the pedigree of an out and out stayer and could put up a bold show here.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win OTAGO TRAIL 11/2  ( 11/2 or bigger with at least 6 firms)
Masters H'cap Chase

This one is at home in testing conditions and has run two excellent races in his last three starts.Although he was unable to confirm his Rehearsal Chase winning form with Bristol De Mae in the Peter Marsh the other week, it was probably more of a case of the Twiston -Davies horse suddenly going places as opposed to Otago Trail being below par. He should give an excellent account of himself today.

Won + 16.5pts
