Verdict

Barry Geraghty's presence on Sands Cove takes the eye and the recent Newbury runner-up should be in the mix. However, Un Anjou may handle today's fast ground better and he's preferred. David Dennis sent out the latter to finish a close-up second at Market Rasen last time but had earlier finished third behind THE LAST NIGHT, who gets the nod. Emma Lavelle's charge made a winning chase debut at Leicester with a couple of subsequent winners behind and there should be plenty more to come from him. Vision Des Champs has a shout if back to his best but Benny The Swinger is facing a tough task upped in class.
