Verdict

YESYOUCAN has never won over this trip but the way he was staying on at the end of 2m4f at Wetherby suggests it shouldn't be a problem on this sharp track and he can give the weight to Loose Chips. Charlie Longsdon's eight-year-old did well to make all in a Kempton novices' handicap on Boxing Day but his yard has gone a little quiet lately. Fourovakind stays well and has won on heavy going. He'll have learned plenty from his fourth at Towcester and will likely be the one to profit if the two previous winners take each other on up front as Flichity looks well out of his depth again.
