Verdict

AIRMEN'S FRIEND ran way below par when sent off joint-favourite at Market Rasen last time. But he's back on a winning mark and Charlie Mann's charge gets another chance dropped in class for this. Roseneath has lost his way this year but may do better back on good ground and Alteranthela has to come into the reckoning only 2lb higher than his victory at Fontwell in December. Ballyvoneen has been dropped a further 4lb and will be taking advantage soon while Roparta Avenue has scope for improvement.
