Verdict

Stuart Coltherd and Lucinda Russell both saddle a couple of runners in this. The former's best hope appear to be Sharney Sike, who has already scored three times over the larger obstacles. He gets on well with 7lb claimer Daragh Bourke and should go closer again but we just prefer Russell's BEN AKRAM. The Musselburgh winner has been slow to come to hand but the six-year-old was only four lengths behind Sharney Sike at Newcastle in December and is 13lb better off now. Gleann Na Ndochais has the past form to figure but isn't easy to catch right.
