Verdict

PROVOST is our preferred option with Noche de Reyes and Kladester respected as dangers. Mick Easterby and Graham Gibbons have formed a solid partnership and its worth noting that the Irishman was aboard Provost when he was successful at Wolverhampton. He is just 3lb higher on a return to a course where he has obliged previously. Noche De Reyes hasn't been seen since November. If the market speaks favourably, it should not be ignored. Kladester is better known over seven but has showed enough to suggest that a mile will not be a problem. Croeso Cusan is quirky though not without ability. Jenny's Pride is off a feasible enough handicap mark at present although her win to run ratio says it all. The Johnsons won this last year and they are set to be represented by Navajo Joe. He dons a visor and tonguestrap for the first time. Provost makes most appeal in a race unlikely to require much in the way of winning.
