In depth

Verdict

Neither Hollins nor My Friend George have shown enough to suggest they can get involved while Clouded Thoughts hasn't shown much since arriving from Ireland and was beaten a long way when runner-up last time. MAKETHE MOSTOFNOW looked very promising when scoring three times over hurdles and making a winning start over fences and though he has yet to fulfil that promise he's been competing at a much higher level and this looks a very good opportunity to get back on track. Rapidolyte De Ladalka won three times between the flags and is two from four over regulation fences but he's a real strong galloper and this slightly quicker ground won't play to his strengths.
