Verdict

Rajnagan has been making hay at a lower level but the handicapper has put him up 15lb since he completed his hat-trick at Newton Abbot just over a month ago and his winning run may come to an end here. Skye But N Ben was beaten in a Cartmel seller on his comeback run but useful Flat performer Brunston seems to be getting his act together over hurdles, though has been raised 7lb for beating Rampant Ronnie in less convincing fashion at Hereford than Rajnagan did earlier. HERON BAY was well beaten on his reappearance at Newton Abbot but will have need that run and is now only a pound higher than when second in a better race at Aintree in the autumn. Visored for the first time, he gets the vote here.
