Verdict

Home Run bids for a hat-trick after wins at Exeter and Taunton earlier this month but has been raised 11lb since. Preference is for MAJESTIC BULL, who easily landed a gamble on heavy ground at Bangor 12 days ago. The handicapper has also hit him hard but there looked to be plenty more in the locker that day and Matt Griffiths takes off 3lb. Kempton winner Thundering Home unseated his rider when favourite at Plumpton last time while Key To Milan may not have beaten much at Taunton in October. Hereford second Withy Mills could be improving however.
