Verdict

Platinum hasn't had much racing over the past couple of years but won once from three starts over hurdles and was only beaten a short-head on the Flat at Catterick earlier this month. Croco Bay attracted some support at Sedgefield a couple of weeks ago and defied a last-flight error to win with a bit in hand. He's up 7lb but is probably on the upgrade and should go well. IMJOEKING has won a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle and looked certain to win a handicap at Carlisle only to be caught close home. He's only been raised 1lb and is looking leniently treated so can gain compensation. Call Back has some strong form to his credit and if anywhere near his best would be in the shake-up.
