Verdict

Sea Lord was completing a six-timer in a Listed race at Kempton last time. John Ferguson's gelding goes from strength-to-strength but there are big ambitions for THE LIQUIDATOR this season and he made satisfactory start over hurdles at Carlisle when sauntering clear over the final half-mile. David Pipe's five-year-old can take the step up in class in his stride. Lac Fontana had few problems justifying short odds in a maiden hurdle here last month but has collected a penalty for that success. Minellaforleisure beat five rivals at Wincanton but it will be a surprise if he's ready to score at this level.
