Verdict

Swaledale Lad won at Carlisle and Cartmel last month and is only a couple of pounds higher. He has claims in this but a number of his rivals also arrive in form. Inoogoo was only beaten two lengths at Wetherby after winning narrowly at Perth while Roc D'Apsis was only beaten a neck at the latter track on his latest start over fences. Chat Room had Dont Take Me Alive when second at Huntingdon and should know more today. LUCKY LANDING is back on a winning mark and this looks a bit easier than recent tests. Tony Coyle's charge might be in the value in this as Woodbank is having problems with his jumping.
