In depth

Verdict

CORRIN WOOD has done most of his racing in much softer ground than he'll face here but looked a very nice staying prospect when making all on his reappearance at Market Rasen and can continue his progress by taking this. Dursey Sound showed himself to be useful when scoring at Bangor in October and was challenging for the lead when unseating A P McCoy at Fakenham last time. Balding Banker, an easy winner of a novice chase at Hexham in May, hasn't made the expected progress and has it all to do.
