Verdict

Donald McCain has sent NODFORM RICHARD all the way from Cheshire and the champions takes the reins. The eight-year-old won over this trip at Catterick in December and, only a couple of pounds higher, can give the weight away to these. Leg Iron is only a pound higher than when second at Plumpton last month and has place claims again while Smart Catch will enjoy conditions, though only beat one home last time at Market Rasen. It's difficult to see any of the others getting involved on recent form.
