Verdict

Johnny Red is making steady progress and was second on his handicap debut at Taunton. Hatters River looked a bit unlucky at Doncaster two runs ago when just behind today's rival Go Set Go and was then second at Kempton last month when well backed. He's gone up 6lb but looks for one for the short-list while I Know The Code won at Uttoxeter last month and Arctic Wings has been hinting at a revival recently and is a past course winner. WILLOW'S SAVIOUR has his sights lowered and was only beaten a length-and-a-half at Exeter in the autumn off today's mark - he gets the nod.
