In depth

Verdict

Cocacobana won three handicaps last season and went up 20lb as a consequence. He may just need this after a long break and the concession of lumps of weight to LUCKY PRINCE may be beyond him. Brian Eckley's charge gained the first success of his career in very testing ground over 2m here on Boxing Day and conditions look just right for him again. The Bear Trap has shown potential but needs to do more after a break while Hassadin's two victories have come in sellers. Get It On is better over fences but Call Me Sir has been running well enough to consider though he's now on his highest ever mark at the age of eleven.
