In depth

Verdict

None of these inspire confidence as even Another For Joe, twice a winner on the Flat this year, was well beaten in all three previous starts over timber. Oscar Stanley has claims on his second at Carlisle in April but CASTLELAWN has a fitness edge and could make it tell despite the fact he was beaten a long way when runner-up here three weeks ago. Bumper winner Anna's Arch has a shout on last season's third over hurdles at Catterick and Glaced Over could figure with a repeat of her placed efforts during the summer.
