In depth

Verdict

The Romford Pele has a penalty for winning at Taunton last month but that's negated by a conditional's 10lb claim. He's the one to beat if handling the testing ground but a chance is taken on SIN BIN. The latter will have come on for his recent second over C&D to Shotgun Paddy and today's ground is no problem. Ubique is another with claims after a much improved effort at Uttoxeter and Carole's Destiny is also worthy of consideration on her close-up third at Newbury. Lost Legend had Samingarry well behind when third at Uttoxeter but has some catching up to do, as does Tornado In Milan.
