Verdict

Honest John stayed on gamely to deny Chac Du Cadran at Doncaster last week and is now on a hat-trick. However, he's going to find this tougher under a 7lb penalty and we prefer AFRICAN BROADWAY. His jumping let him down against seasoned handicappers at Carlisle last month but this is less competitive and David Pipe's six-year-old still has bags of scope over fences. Brass Tax dead-heated over a shorter trip here last time and shouldn't be far away and Moonlight Drive could go well on only his second run over fences. Musselburgh runner-up Balding Banker also has claims if staying the extra but Kilmacowen needs to find more.
