Forecast

Christmas In April (4/5), Over To Sam (5/2), Virginia Chick (7/2), Positive Touch (100/1)

Verdict
Despite the 7lb rise he has been hit with for achieving a career-best when winning the Sussex National at this track recently, this looks wholly less competitive than that race which gives CHRISTMAS IN APRIL an outstanding chance of completing the hat-trick. Over To Sam is incredibly lightly raced for a nine-year-old (only had the four career starts under rules), but he is back on a retrieval mission after running well below-par at Aintree when pulled-up on his seasonal reappearance. Virginia Chick has only had the four runs over fences, but has been disappointing since opening his account over obstacles at the second attempt earlier in the season.
