In depth

Verdict

Beaten on his last couple of starts at Kempton and then Doncaster last Saturday, TAKE COVER is beginning to look like a course specialist. He won all three outings at this track last year and the lightly-raced five-year-old may not have finished winning yet. Amenable is also unbeaten on Fibresand though he's failed to figure on the Turf of late while Waking Warrior has been raised 8lb for an admittedly easy victory over C&D last time. Beat The Bell arrives on the back of a win at Wolverhampton though none of his 10 wins have been on this surface and both of Outpost's course wins came over a mile.
