Verdict

Young claimer Harry Bannister gave FINE PARCHMENT an excellent ride from the front at Taunton last time but the partnership was collared close home by No Secrets. The shorter trip today should be in his favour and he'll have most of these in trouble if jumping as well here. He's just preferred to Ballyallia Man, who was second over 3m2f here on Boxing Day but won over 2m4f at Market Rasen in April last year and should be thereabouts while it will be interesting to see if there's any money for the useful pair Definity and Moleskin, who both reappear following a lay-off. Brian Ellison runs both Andreo Bambaleo and Simonside and they can't be ignored but Webberys Dream and Only Vintage were pulled up last time.
