Verdict

Many of these arrive here in good form including FORGET IT, who can complete a hat-trick. Gary Moore's charge fell twice over timber but is much better over fences and though 8lb higher than when scoring over the C&D last month Josh Moore's claim will be a big help. Mister Wiseman is another on a three-timer and has finally got his act together over fences. However, he's been handed a 13lb rise for his latest success which gives him a stiff task. I'm A Legend won twice here in November and has continued to run very well in better company. He had some useful chasers behind when runner-up to Tatenen at Ascot and looks a big threat. Double The Trouble doesn't win very often but is on a fair mark as he showed with a good run at Warwick last month.
