Verdict

We're going to give another chance to WHIPCRACKAWAY in this opener as he may well have beaten Juno The Muffinman at Warwick last time had he not blundered and unseated Leighton Aspell at the last. He was only beaten a length-and-a-quarter by subsequent Sandown scorer Feb Thirtyfirst over this C&D earlier when Exeter winner Annaluna was back in third. Vexillum won over 1m6f on the Polytrack in October and is now with Harry Fry. He should pay his way over timber while Musselburgh winner Dovils Date looks the best of the penalised runners as he was taking on smart opposition last time.
