Verdict

Although he must shoulder a 7lb penalty, it is hard to get away from the sole winner in this field in the shape of LET ME BE who won in the style of a good horse when off the mark at the first attempt at Aintree last month. He can maintain his 100% record for the in-form duo of Keith Dalgleish and Brian Hughes. There are a few interesting newcomers in the line-up, namely Grey Expectations whose pedigree is an attractive one for bumpers (dam a three-time bumper winner). The Irish pair of Whowonthetoss and On My Command, as well as It'llcomein are respected coming from the sources they do and that trio could feature if the market speaks positively for them.
  1. Let Me Be
  2. Whowonthetoss
  3. Grey Expectations
