Verdict

This is a competitive seller with a few of the runners dropping into this grade for the first time. Marju King is one and he has each-way claims. Regal One is another while Full Ov Beans has won four times over fences. VIKING BLOND hasn't won a race of any description since 2011 but ran in last year's Grand National and all four of his runs this season have been in much better company. He'll need a strong pace to be effective over this trip but might be in a different league to these if he gets it. Stow's form figures are impressive but he's been well placed this season and can be a hard ride. He's also conceding upwards of 10lb to his rivals in this.
