Verdict

Exeter scorer Samingarry is climbing the weights and may get found out today. Minella Definitely is feasibly handicapped but has fallen in both chase starts. Midnight Prayer was struggling to get on top at Stratford in October when the long-time leader fell at the last. He has 7lb more to carry here but there are possibilities about Hansupfordetroit off the same mark as when a close second at Ffos Las. BALLYTOBER travelled strongly for a long way on his chasing bow at Exeter but was just touched off. A winning pointer, he has a future over fences and James Best's claim is a major plus here. Wilton Milan should also improve now tackling the larger obstacles but Annacotty was well beaten at Ascot after winning at Kempton.
