A very modest contest can go to FORCEFIELD, who has at least already shown a liking for this track having scored over 3m here in November. He's been below par since but is only a couple of pounds higher today and can give the weight away to Southwell second Liscahill Karella. Tomzatackman was third over 2m4f here on his return from a break and could figure but Mia Matriarch has disappointed over hurdles so far. Over And Above has won between the flags but is flattered by recent form figures as he was well beaten at both Southwell and Sedgefield.
