In depth

Verdict

Cara Court is adaptable as to distance and won over 2m here two runs ago. The runner-up Bocamix contests the previous race. Salut Honore won at Towcester in November but has been well beaten twice since and both Mannered and Barnevelder were pulled up last time. Esme Rides A Gaine got up close home at Hexham last time but her wins have been few and far between and BENNYS WELL is surely the one to beat in this. He ran well enough in better company at Uttoxeter last time to suggest a third win over fences was just around the corner off his current mark.
