In depth

Verdict

Evella's win in an amateurs' race at Fakenham doesn't amount to much and she has a 7lb penalty here. There may be more to come from Brandon Thomas and Sophonie but Sawago looked very one-paced at Folkestone last time. Chestnut Ben probably needed his run at Uttoxeter last month and won here last March but we'll forgive MEMORABILIA his first run over fences at Market Rasen and he may have too much class for these. John Ferguson's five-year-old was racing for the first time since February at the Lincolnshire track and is better judged on last season's campaign over hurdles which included a smooth victory at Ludlow, another tight right-handed course.
