- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
2lb worse off with Muratello for a ¾l beating of him at Haydock last time, but may have more to come going back right-handed, which should help; handles heavy ground and despite 7lb rise for latest win, looks the one to beat again.
Getting the hang of it over fences now, 2-2 last two starts and didn't have to improve to score at Carlisle last time out; will have to under a penalty but handles heavy ground, jumps well and will be no pushover.
Runner-up last two starts and in good form at present; handles heavy ground well but more of a question mark will be the drop back to the minimum trip, with best form coming over further; chances if coping with it.
Finished 2¾l behind Billingsley at Hereford last time out, 9lb better off here and gets a first-time tongue-tie are the reasons why he might turn that around; this will only be third chase start, so open to improvement as well.
Came good at Leicester in December but that was in a lesser contest than this, and she was well beaten from 6lb higher at Fakenham next time out. Needs more others make more appeal.
