Forecast

No Likey (9/4), Ulis De Vassy (2/1), Drumlang (4/1), Nikos Extra (9/2), Engai (16/1)

Verdict

Drumlang has won twice in quick succession and is back in form but he'll need to improve again to shrug off a double penalty in this. No Likey failed to cope with his new mark at Worcester last month, though did have subsequent Bangor scorer Nikos Extra behind at Uttoxeter earlier and is entitled to confirm that form on only 2lb worse terms. Engai won over course and distance in May but has hardly raised a gallop since. ULIS DE VASSY hasn't raced since October but fitness is unlikely to be an issue and the six-year-old still has plenty of scope over fences. The booking of Richard Johnson is a major positive.
