Verdict

Forget It has a preferred engagement at Wincanton but appears to have the beating of Lordsbridge on his win at Kempton in November. Plumpton winner Mister Stickler ran poorly at Bangor next time and has a bit to prove now, while Kellystown Lad was well beaten at Leicester earlier this month. Frontier Dancer appears to have lost his way but Premier Sagas was beaten less than a length by Sagalryque at Ayr and is only 3lb higher here. Rougham wasn't disgraced at Wincanton on a first try over a longer distance but looks too close in the weights to OSRIC, who won a shade cosily over this trip at Ffos Las and can probably find the improvement necessary to defy top weight here.
