Verdict

Midnight Charmer only won by a neck at Taunton at the end of December but certainly wasn't winning out of turn and Seventh Hussar was pulled up in that contest. He's only 4lb higher here and regular pilot James Banks takes off 7lb. Still at the right end of the handicap, he should go close again but CAULFIELDS VENTURE's second to Reginaldinho at Leicester was a good run and the latter is fancied to open his account over fences here. Fireitfromye was placed at Worcester and Stratford last summer but hasn't raced since August and a bigger danger may be Highland River, who is dropped in class.
