Subject of a gamble last time but disappointed once more and has left Ben Pauling for pastures new. Two years since the last of his four victories and it remains to be seen if a change of scenery has rekindled his enthusiasm.

Opened his account in a poor race at Stratford a year ago. Not seen since and up 6lb in a race where his stable companion looks a stronger candidate.

9/2
Has won here a couple of times on heavy ground so hard to blame the conditions for his two recent lacklustre efforts. His wins have come at odds ranging from 6/4-7/2 so the market may be a good guide to his current wellbeing.

Finished tired at Towcester last time when showing there was a small race to be won with him. This slightly shorter trip on a less demanding circuit should see him go close once again.

Best effort over hurdles came on heavy ground off a much higher mark than this and best effort over fences came here on penultimate start. Beaten a long way last time when last of two finishers, but he could be the one to test Finnegan's Garden.

20-race maiden who has rarely gone close, including at this level. Has had plenty of chances and difficult to see him getting off the mark here.

Betting

Forecast

Finnegan's Garden (9/4), Kavanaghs Corner (7/2), Lickpenny Larry (7/2), Gustav (9/2), Some Finish (9/2), Bonds Conquest (5/1), Daveron (13/2)

Verdict

This looks tailormade for FINNEGAN'S GARDEN to follow up last year's success in this. He won a more competitive event at Lingfield on Monday from out of the weights. He escapes a penalty and is effectively 5lb lower in the handicap this time. Lickpenny Larry and Kavanagh's Corner are prominent racers who are proven in the conditions, so they are the pair most likely to test the probable favourite.
