Verdict

It may pay to concentrate on CASPER KING and Not Another Muddle in this tricky little novices heat. The former has shown a resilient attitude so far, and the manner of his success at Exeter created the impression he has plenty more to offer. The Might Don is another that is going the right way and, as he escapes any penalties, he can make sure Not Another Muddle will have a stiff fight on his hands if the selection fails to deliver for any reason. Cash Again is respected and worth noting in the betting; he may need a stiffer test though. 1. Casper King 2. Not Another Muddle 3. The Mighty Don
