Verdict

Midnight Sail earns full marks for consistency but that means he gets no respite from the handicapper and is 2lb higher than when second for the fourth time in a row at Doncaster last month. Delgany Gunner usually runs his race but this represents a step up in grade while Firebird Flyer is back over fences off an 11lb higher mark than when scoring at Ludlow in November. NO NO BINGO was all out to win at Hereford last time and has been raised 7lb since but that was only his fourth start over the larger obstacles and he's still heading in the right direction. He gets the vote here, though Simply Wings is proven at this level and could easily bounce back from a below-par run at Cheltenham. Lord Singer has a poor strike rate however.
