5/2
Point-to-point winner and unbeaten in three starts under rules including over hurdles the last twice. Justified favouritism at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) last time out and one for the shortlist on handicap debut.

Finished runner-up in this in 2016 and went one betteroff a 2lb higher mark 12 months later Well beaten on heavy ground at Leicester last time out but worth a check in the market as he bids for a second success in this.

Betting

Forecast

Vado Forte (9/4), The Dubai Way (5/2), Northandsouth (4/1), Not Never (6/1), Banco De Logos (8/1), Sneaking Budge (12/1), Spader (14/1), Born Legend (16/1), Catchin Time (20/1)

Verdict

NOT NEVER can record his third win in his last four outings by taking the concluding handicap hurdle on the card. The six-year-old hails from a stable who can boast a 22% strike-rate (2/9) over hurdles here and an additional six placed efforts from just nine runners in recent seasons and with the trip and ground both likely to be in his favour he can get the better of Vado Forte who was a winner last time and remains open to improvement. The Dubai Way is unbeaten since going under rules and can finish third on today's handicap debut while money for Catchin Time would be interesting as he goes in search of a second victory in this particular event.
