Verdict

The Ferbane Man has plenty of stamina and wasn't beaten far off this mark at Market Rasen last week. He has a poor strike rate, however, while a question mark hangs over Aghill after he was pulled up over hurdles at Worcester earlier in the month. Wor Room is still a maiden and was tailed off on his latest start, while It's Like That was well beaten when unseating his rider at Stratford last time. Itzacliche looks to be in the handicapper's grip and also has something to find with KILVERGAN BOY on Perth running in June. That remains the latter's only success over fences but he ran well when third over 3m3f at Newton Abbot subsequently and this stamina test could be just what he needs nowadays - the bottom weight gets the vote.
