In depth

Verdict

Samurai Way was third at Lingfield following a lengthy break and then only found one too good at Bangor. He must have a decent chance of going one better here while Roseneath is probably still on a decent mark and is another with solid claims. BADGERS COVE is also starting to look well treated and this is probably his best chance yet to record a victory over fences. Robin Dickin's charge can come out best as Wood Yer may need more time and Elite Beneficial isn't getting any better.
