In depth

Verdict

Inthejungle, Delgany Gunner and She's Humble are all returning from a break and might struggle to keep tabs on the other three, who have all seen action more recently. BALLYMAN is 5lb higher than when beating She's Humble in this 12 months ago but he's been placed in his last three starts, the latter two coming over C&D. Jonathan Geake's 11-year-old is probably the one to beat with Evella becoming increasingly unreliable and Tchang Goon carrying 14lb more than his allotted weight.
