Verdict

State Benefit beat Relax when landing an amateurs' race at Sandown on his return from a lay-off. But he's not been the most consistent in the past and Pete The Feat is in the form of his life, notching up a four-timer in heavy ground at Lingfield last month. He's now 29lb higher than when his winning run began, however, and MARINGO BAY is just preferred as he's moving in the opposite direction. Down 10lb in the weights since this time last year, he had Imperial Circus behind when second in testing going at Chepstow three weeks ago and Charlie Mann's charge looks set for a return to winning ways. Rey Nacarado is another to consider as he's only 1lb higher than when winning last year's renewal and Tony McCoy is on board for the first time.
