In depth

Verdict

Victory Gunner may be a relative pensioner in comparison to most of these but wasn't disgraced at Exeter last month and knows his way around here. Mauricetheathlete is another course specialist but is better over hurdles. Camden is plummeting down the weights and eased in grade while Requin is also starting to look well treated. Rocky Bender is lightly raced over fences and Ballylifen certainly has the form to figure in this grade but Present To You found little when push came to shove at Plumpton last time and has become hard to win with. MASTER NEO started favourite for a race at Warwick in January in which Present To You eventually finished third but fell. He has his ground today, however, and an experienced conditional on board and could be the value.
