10/3

Useful under Rules, especially when the ground was on the quick side, and ran a little better than finishing position suggested at Cheltenham last time. Will find this easier and has chances.

Won this under a different pilot last year, so trip, track and ground all fine. Form since then not so good but has faced some hard tasks and raced on unsuitable ground, so has excuses. Could easily bounce back.

6/4

Winner at this meeting back in 2015, and has run well here in defeat. Looked all over the winner at Fakenham latest until getting very tired late on but has excellent pilot on board and looks one of the more likely ones here.

40/1

Won one at Penshurst in April when he was the only finisher of three, but well beaten on other starts this year and looks an unlikely winner.

Well beaten in two maiden point-to-points and needs an awful lot of improvement to challenge for the top prizes here.

Not without ability for Charlie Longsden under Rules and did win a Members contest at Parham last month, but might prefer softer conditions than is likely and on balance, needs to find more.

Betting

Forecast

Can Mestret (6/4), Never Complain (13/8), Forever My Friend (10/3), Hazy Tom (25/1), Fountains Cider (40/1), Hammer And Anvil (40/1)

Verdict

Never Complain will be well tuned up in an effort to win this again but CAN MESTRET is in good form and has the assistance of the excellent Gina Andrews to help. They can come out on top. Forever My Friend looks best of the rest.,
