Verdict

Foggy's Wall had every chance at Taunton 11 days ago while patience is wearing thin with Red Devil Lads. Mount Vesuvius is returning from a break but Huntingdon third Mission To Mars should be thereabouts again while Warwick winner Good Of Luck went close under a penalty at Southwell next time. GOLANOVA found the company too hot at Wincanton in January but can profit from the drop in distance and easier grade here to get back on track. Stable companion Should I Stay could also run well but Horatio Hornblower needs to bounce back from a disappointing effort at Haydock.
