Verdict

Argaum has winning form in better company and was third in a claimer over C&D last month. However, he also held an entry at Exeter yesterday so isn't certain to make the starting line-up here. AVISO blundered and unseated Lee Stephens at Stratford last month and was then well beaten on the Polytrack, but he's back in selling grade for the first time since scoring over C&D in January and should prove hard to beat with a clear round. Smalib Monterg reappears after a break and has his first run for Fergal O'Brien while Nicky Nutjob is only modest and it's not a good sign that Wahan is started off at the lowest level.
