Verdict

Not much to get excited about here with Ballyman having finished tailed off on a return visit to Plumpton having won there at the start of December. Alldunnandusted's Plumpton conqueror Niceonefrankie has won again since but Seamus Mullins' charge is nought from 12 over fences and GRAND ARTICLE makes more appeal. Admittedly, he was doing his best work at the finish over 2m5f at Warwick last time but that still looks the best form in this. Wosayu looked a tricky ride when last of three at Fontwell and the blinkers are now applied, while Hector's House also looks far from straightforward.
