Verdict

Sustainability was a little disappointing at Sandown after a promising second at Exeter and has a bit to prove now. Five Rivers could be interesting as he will have learned plenty from his third at Huntingdon while a similar comment applies to Balinroab following his run at Leicester. He's already won between the flags and A P McCoy has chosen him over the out-of-form Amuse Me. RED ROCK can race off the same mark as when second over this trip on soft ground at Stratford in October. Conor Quish again takes off 10lb and, with Emma Lavelle's chasers in great form, he's possibly the one to beat. Chestnut Ben won twice last season but hasn't raced since March and the others have something to find.
