Verdict

Mr Valentino has been dropped a couple of pounds since finishing third to Spot The Ball over C&D two weeks ago. Landenstown Star was second over 3m2f at Hereford earlier this month while it's not difficult to see lowly-weighted pair Quartz Du Montceau and Duke Of Ormond getting involved but Jasperito may be suffering from a lack of confidence. SEA CADET hasn't won since scoring off an 8lb higher mark at Huntingdon in late 2009 but has been placed on several occasions and the booking of McCoy here is a positive sign - he could end his long wait for a fourth victory over fences.
