Verdict

COAX had the proverbial ton in hand when beating Forestside by seven lengths at Catterick before Christmas and Jim Tango was a well-beaten fifth. The handicapper has raised him 8lb but that was only to be expected and Patrick Holmes' six-year-old has the scope to win again off his new mark. Civil Unrest is back over fences for the first time since October and may be a few pounds too high while Ballycool carries a penalty for last week's easy win at Kelso and was earlier behind Jim Tango at the same track.
