Verdict

The handicapper is showing no mercy to Chestnut Ben, who has been raised 4lb for his latest second to Alderbrook Lad at Worcester. He struggles to get his head in front and SAFE INVESTMENT makes far more appeal having beaten Alderbrook Lad here 10 days ago when The Grey One was a remote third. He was going away at the finish and can defy an 8lb higher mark. Osmosia has been well beaten off lower marks over hurdles lately while Huntingdon second Novikov is on a long losing run. Wak A Turtle has some scope, however, but may have been flattered by his second to Cinevator here on his fencing bow.
