Stilo Blue Native (9/4), Dark And Dangerous (10/3), Astrum (9/2), Strait Run (9/2), Fiddler's Flight (7/1), Boethius (16/1), Baraboy (22/1)

Verdict

Dark and Dangerous seeks a third Sedgefield success since Boxing Day, and clearly handles the undulations of this track perfectly, but it must be doubtful whether he'd have beaten STRAIT RUN last time but for that rival edging right after the omitted final hurdle, and the Micky Hammond trained six-year-old can build upon that improved showing off a lightweight with Joe Colliver seeking to make amends from the saddle. 1. Strait Run 2. Dark And Dangerous 3. Baraboy
