Verdict

There are one or two dark horses lining up here. Cry of Freedom was a decent novice last season but hasn't been seen since April last year while FLOGAROSE won at Nimes in November. Lucy Normile's recent acquisition won four times in all in the French provinces and, though she's pitched in at the deep end here, is getting a lot of weight and could be a worth a small bet. Roman Flight has AP McCoy in the saddle and has run well on the Polytrack since finishing second at Doncaster but stablemate Ifandbutwhynot may have too much weight now and Rumble of Thunder has struggled this season. Ultimate and Anna's Arch may also be worth taking on at present.
