Ninetieth Minute was travelling well when falling at Newbury on his return. He should be thereabouts with a clear round, but ALWAYS RIGHT is just preferred. John Wade's veteran finished third to Palypso De Creek at Wetherby on his reappearance and has a bit in hand with the remainder of the opposition on today's terms. What A Laugh has won one of these events at Aintree and can figure along with Bobs Law. Current Exchange never looked like catching the winner when runner-up in last year's renewal but could prove best of the rest.
