Verdict

Rossbrin has dropped to a very lenient mark and may have needed last month's run at Huntingdon. Strongbows Legend and Bishophill Jack both showed signs of a revival last time but Rebel Swing is usually worth opposing and has changed stable since finishing third at Carlisle six weeks ago. Smooth Classic ran in snatches at Uttoxeter last time but will be fancied to go one better here and Red Rouble is better than he showed here last month. BLACKWELL SYNERGY took a while to get the hang of jumping fences but won at Huntingdon in March and was a fair third at Uttoxeter earlier this month - this looks within his capabilities.
