Verdict

Coverholder could hardly be in better form but 25lb higher than for his latest success at Bangor and 47lb higher than when his running run began in December, he's going to find it tough to complete the six-timer. Anna's Arch can figure back in novice company but the four-year-old Red Tyke hasn't had a run since October and is high enough in the weights. MY IDEA finally got off the mark in his 20th race under Rules here last month. He's only gone up 3lb and might be worth sticking with as Lucky Landing is back over hurdles after another spell chasing and Croco Bay might need an easier surface.
