Winner over slightly shorter at Sedgefield in March but a poor effort when last seen, finishing off very weakly. Cheekpieces given a try now but no guarantees they'll work, and this ground could be plenty lively enough as well.

Not happened for him yet but from a good yard, who will start having plenty of winners this summer soon, and this step up in trip may see a better effort. Champion jockey booked and chances in a weak race.

Not seen for almost a year but had just picked up a little point-to-point at Kingston Blount. Yard pick the odd good horse up from that sphere so worth a look in the market if nothing else.

Betting

Forecast

Henry's Joy (11/10), Flynnvincible (6/5), Merry Milan (2/1), The Drone (8/1)

Verdict

MERRY MILAN has a penalty to carry for his Bangor win but that was a good step forward and a repeat of that may well be good enough. Flynnvincible could leave his form behind now he gets more of a trip and may be the danger, with Henry's Joy a bit to prove after a disappointment last time out.
