Verdict

You can raise question marks against most of these but not Easy Beesy, who won at Towcester and Fontwell before Christmas. He was well beaten several times in this higher grade last season however. Despite having won a couple of point-to-points, HARRY'S FAREWELL didn't appear to get home over 3m1f here last month. He has half-a-mile less to cover today and that could see him gain a first success over timber. Upton Wood has been knocking on the door lately and should be thereabouts again while Coup De Grace has to be on the short-list. Pat Phelan's charge was fourth in a decent handicap at Ascot in December and has won over 2m on the Polytrack since. Smiles For Miles has shown promise but has plenty of weight.
