Verdict

Zafranagar won over the C&D last year and scored over hurdles on Boxing Day and was last seen landing a Doncaster handicap in March. He's shot up the weights but his young rider's claim can help him to a decent run. The Lock Master ran a rare poor race at Newcastle last time but is generally consistent and likes it around here. Noble Jack disappointed over 1m4f at Wolverhampton after winning twice over 1m1f there earlier while Danube River ran poorly when strongly fancied at Nottingham after scoring on quicker ground at Bath. SIGNIFICANT MOVE has dropped to a fair mark and has been running well enough to be handed the vote in what looks an open race. Rosselli won a Hamilton maiden on good going but couldn't quite make the progress to handicaps at Haydock.
