Forecast

As You Like (3/1), Follow The Swallow (3/1), Midnight Gem (7/2), Iona Days (9/2), Larkhall (10/1), Tequila Secret (14/1), That's The Deal (16/1), Scorpo (33/1), The Society Man (100/1)

Verdict
Top weight MIDNIGHT GEM can step up on last months return to action by taking this handicap chase. The selection has won off a higher mark over hurdles in the past and can get the better of As You Like whose handicap mark has fallen following some moderate efforts last year. Iona Days can finish third dropping in grade.
