Verdict

Bled was the very easy winner of a 2m5f handicap at Uttoxeter in November but ran poorly over today's trip there two weeks later. RUPIN scored by a distance over 3m1f at Carlisle in October and, though that was one of the poorest contests imaginable, he jumps and stays well and can progress enough to take this. Ceasar's Return ran well in a novice event at Hexham in November but was beaten a long way at Catterick a month later and a better option could be Oil Burner, who stayed on stoutly in a handicap over an extended three miles at Ayr recently. Soll landed a point at Liscarroll in May and will certainly have no problems with the trip.
