Verdict

Martin Keighley has a good strike rate here and Always Bold wasn't beaten far when runner-up at Uttoxeter last time. Days Of Pleasure broke his duck over fences at Worcester 12 days ago but this looks more competitive, though ex-pointer Gospel Preacher and Smart Exit are possibly best watched following a break. SAMINGARRY carries a penalty after winning by 10 lengths at Aintree last week but he'll probably be raised by more than 7lb in future races and can defy his welter burden with Mark Quinlan taking off 3lb.
