Verdict

Back On The Road was a surprise winner of this 12 months ago under Jamie Alexander but may struggle to stage a repeat. Viking Rebel was just starting to feel the pinch when falling at Cheltenham last time but had won at Carlisle earlier while Barachois Silver arrives off the back of a second at Hexham, though looks a thorough stayer. SCRUM V had a couple of decent hunter chasers behind when second to Well Mett over further here last month. He deserves a change of luck and this looks a good opportunity, though Bayfirth and Cobblers Hill can't be ignored.
