Panettone was favourite when third at Brighton on only her second start of the campaign but she isn't really firing and was well beaten twice last season over similar trips. DR FINLEY looks a much more attractive prospect as he stays well and showed plenty of resolution to beat Knox Overstreet by a nose over course and distance last month. He is taken to score again ahead of Market Rasen hurdles winner Meetings Man and Native Colony, who hasn't won a race since landing a maiden handicap over track and trip almost two years ago. Iceman George still looks a few pounds too high.
