Musical Wedge is a consistent performer at this level and probably found 4m1f a shade too far at Exeter last time. He should be thereabouts again while Ratify is back on a winning mark returning to chasing and Bonoman won at Ffos Las in November, though appears to have gone backwards since. SANDY'S DOUBLE is going handicapping after just one run over fences but his third at Bangor last month was a decent effort and, with the longer trip certain suit, he could be worth an interest in this modest handicap.
