Verdict

Impossible to rule any of these out so at the likely odds it could be worth chancing BIG BAD BEAR. He went well for a long way before fading into third on return at Musselburgh earlier this month and, having dropped 2 lb below his last winning mark, Nicky Richards' course winner gets the vote. Wbee is chasing an impressive 5-timer so he's feared most on reappearance, ahead of Starsky.
