In depth

Verdict

A couple of these stand out. MILO MAN landed the odds in good style at Carlisle last month. He carries a penalty here but may well have enough to hold off the attentions of Heath Hunter. The latter had to dig a bit deeper to get his head in front over a longer trip here last time but should figure in the finish. The remainder have plenty of catching up to do to match the principals, although Make Me A Fortune had been threatening before a below-par effort at Market Rasen last time and Monita Bonita ran well on her hurdling debut at this track. Wymeswold landed a bumper here in October but was well beaten over timber at Uttoxeter last time.
