Verdict

PLANETOID landed a huge gamble at Newton Abbot last week with the minimum of fuss following a break. McCoy, a late jockey change that day, keeps the ride and Jim Best's charge will be a short price to follow up under a penalty. Tom Wade also carries extra after winning at Southwell on Monday but has more on his plate now while Bob's Legend is probably still high enough in the weights judged on his third at Ludlow. Call Me April looks the pick of the remainder ahead of Fairy Alisha as there are serious stamina doubts surrounding Flat winner Fred Willetts.
