Verdict

Today's longer trip should prove no problem for GRANDIOSO given his easy win over 2m4f in soft ground at Ludlow last week. Paul Nicholls' charge can shrug off a penalty and go in again. Howard's Legacy bounced back with a much better effort at Wincanton last month when finding only Opening Batsman too good and he should go well while Night Force has shown some promise over fences, though he's facing a stiffer task here. The Musical Guy disappointed in heavy ground over these fences last time and the suspicion that he needs fast going to show his best remains.
