Verdict

Though it was difficult to be enthused by his performance at Southwell last time, it may be worth sticking with GOOSEN MAVERICK. This gelding looked a nice prospect as a chaser prior to disappointing there (he may have finished fourth if not being pulled up due to a mistake late on), and clearly wasn't himself that day. He is taken to get back to winning ways here, ahead of the improving Cucklington and Crank Em Up, another who can possibly be forgiven a poor run last time.
  1. Goosen Maverick
