Verdict

Bit Of A Jig and Scotswell are likely to set a strong gallop and that could catch out a few of these. Kentford Legend also won over this trip last time but not without a few alarms and whether he'll be good enough to defy an 8lb higher mark is open to debate. Tony Star's jumping has left a lot to be desired so far but King Of The Wolds is starting to come down the weights again, though this will be the first time he's been asked to go beyond 2m6f. SAMSTOWN has bags of stamina and could have the race run to suit. He went close over course and distance last time having just fallen short over 3m4f at Wincanton earlier and might still be well handicapped. Butney Boy and Presented look best of the rest.
