Verdict

Lucinda Russell won this last year and her Badger Foot has every chance of going one better than at Newcastle in March. Pyjama Game hasn't run since November and Neptune Equester looks a light of former days, but Harris Hawk is usually thereabouts and can't be ignored. PRESENT POTENTIAL steps out of hunter chases but there's no doubting his effectiveness over track and trip and he probably came up against a decent sort here last time. Kit Alexander takes off 7lb and the seven-year-old is fancied to come out on top.
