In depth

Verdict

Masterleaderman has scope for further progress after winning a maiden hurdle at Kelso in December. Ryton Runner won a lower grade contest at Musselburgh recently but will find this much tougher, while both Moscow Presents and Merrydown disappointed last time. Lackamon and Wayward Glance have both been winning over fences of late, although the latter ran well over timber when second at Towcester last month. TIMESISHARD had a couple of subsequent winners behind when scoring at Doncaster on his latest start. A conditional negates most of a 6lb rise today and Graeme McPherson's charge is taken to go in again.
