In depth

Verdict

Boa has posted a couple of woeful efforts since scoring over C&D last month and runner-up HONEST DEAL can reverse running. Alan Swinbank's charge is having his first outing since and can confirm superiority with third-placed Sir Boss. Jeer can be given a chance off his current mark as he's only 2lb higher than when winning over track and trip in September but Honoured is upped in class after his recent C&D victory and stablemate White Diamond makes more appeal for Mike Appleby's in-form yard.
