Verdict

Aintree winner Josies Orders is tried in blinkers after failing to justify favouritism at Wetherby earlier this month. He has a chance if the headgear has the desired effect while Brave Buck has been much improved this season and is worth another try over 3m. Forever Present couldn't get to grips with all-the-way winner Theatrebar at Ludlow but the extra yardage might help and he has a bit more scope than some of these. Patsys Castle may have too much weight on his handicap debut and there is no evidence to suggest Exeter scorer Boss In Boots will stay this far but ZAFARABAN has each-way claims if you ignore his latest run at Huntingdon and he could be the value in a tricky opener.
