Verdict

Barton Stacey hasn't run over fences since scoring at Stratford in May but did win over hurdles at Fontwell earlier this month when Victor Leudorum, now a pound worse off, was well beaten. He has to go on the short-list as does last month's Newton Abbot winner Porters War. My Lad Percy still has a bit to prove over the larger obstacles, however, while Trafalgar has a long absence to overcome but Johnny's Way is a previous course and distance winner who hasn't been disgraced back under Rules lately. FOREVER MY FRIEND turned in a shocker at Bangor last time but is weighted to reverse earlier running with Porters War and goes well here - he's given another chance.
