Verdict

Settledoutofcourt easily won a conditionals' handicap over a shorter distance at Hexham last week and escapes a penalty. He must go close here with a similar effort but his odds will reflect that fact and we're just as interested in MR SUPREME. The top weight goes well fresh and has been given plenty of time to recover from a disastrous first run over fences at Doncaster a year ago - this is more his trip and he still has a future. John Wade's chasers are always worth a second look here and Dingo Bay won twice over these fences last winter. Bishophill Jack will be all the better for his run at Exeter last month but Foot The Bill was very disappointing on his return to action at Musselburgh and may need another run to put him straight.
