Verdict

Western King got back to winning ways at Ludlow last month but has tended to struggle in this higher grade in the past. Forresters Folly, Bertie Boru and Sin Bin are all interesting tackling fences for the first time but Coole River fell heavily when fancied at Wincanton last time and both Hatters River and The Mumper have been off the track for a while. GUESS AGAIN beat a couple of more experienced and in-form rivals on only his second start over fences at Warwick. That was a conditionals' race so David Pipe's charge can race off the same mark in this and is hard to oppose.
