Verdict

It's taking a while for LAMB OR COD to get the hang of jumping fences and he did himself no favours when fancied at Uttoxeter last month. A pair of blinkers could help him concentrate, however, and he certainly has the ability to win a race like this off his current mark if getting his act together. Ifyousayso was only beaten a neck at Newbury when bidding for a hat-trick but has gone up a further 5lb while Sixty Something and Barlow have more to do than in recent respective wins at Bangor and Chepstow. Whistling Senator and The Potting Shed have an absence to overcome but Speed Master ran well at Ludlow after scoring at Warwick and is still heading in the right direction.
