1111-10OR: 110CD

Winner of three Open point-to-points last season and made a winning seasonal debut at Cottenham (3m, good-to-firm) before Christmas. 22L second over this C&D latest (has won here before), looks second-best in this match despite point success since.

Betting

Forecast

Virak (8/13), Now Ben (5/4)

Verdict

He's unbeaten in four this season and VIRAK after making hay in point-to-point and recording a pleasing Ascot success last month back in this sphere. He looks to have been handed a fine chance to go in again with just one rival. Former C&D winner and second here last month, Now Ben will certainly keep him honest.
