Verdict

CATEGORICAL has won from a higher mark than this in the past and looked back to something like his best at Aintree last time when a close third to Jamsie Hall in a much better race than this. He'll take some beating from the same mark here. O'Callaghan Strand hasn't run well on his two starts since returning from a break though he's only 6lb higher than his victory at Ludlow in January. Honest John completed a double at this time a year ago, though he's been jumping poorly subsequently, and Everaard likes a flat track and quick ground so today's conditions should enable him to get involved.
