Verdict

Andy Kelly should go well back against novices and makes more appeal than Masquerade, who was a little disappointing at Sedgefield last time. Couldhavehaditall hasn't progressed as expected and Lemony Bay was well beaten stepped up in trip at Doncaster, though had finished second to a useful novice over 2m1f on Town Moor earlier. NED STARK hasn't raced since finishing second to Mosspark at Exeter in November but the winner went on to land a Listed race at Huntingdon before contesting the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham earlier this week and Alan King's six-year-old should go one better here getting 6lb from the two previous winners.
