Verdict
SAMSON has had success in chasing over this distance and he is likely to enjoy his return to fences here. He still looks to be off a winnable mark and the blinkers should help so take the gelding to record his second victory in this contest. Midnight Maestro was not too far away last time off this mark at Stratford where the trip was slightly too far for him. This distance will help his chances, while Beni Light has been in good form in point-to-points and may improve for a switch in yards so expect him to be not too far away.
  1. Samson
  2. Midnight Maestro
  3. Beni Light
