Verdict

Acrai Rua bounced back with a victory over 3m5f at Market Rasen in December and should be in the mix. Nail 'M carries a penalty for his success in a novices' handicap at Towcester last week while an 8lb rise proved beyond Ancient Times at Ayr when he attempted to follow up an earlier win at the same track. A 12lb hike for a recent win over track and trip may seem a bit harsh on BENNYS WELL but Sue Smith's charge was eased down once clear of the field and there should be plenty more to come from him. The Magic Bishop looks best of the rest on his earlier placed efforts.
