Verdict

TELL ME Y is tried in blinkers after being pulled up when favourite at Chepstow last month. Lightly-raced, he beat the smart At Fishers Cross as a novice and a repeat of his second at Towcester in November would probably suffice here. My Arch ran well behind Neptune Equester at Wetherby on Boxing Day but won't find it easy to carry his big weight over this longer trip while Sun Cloud was well beaten off his new mark at Doncaster last time. Everdon Brook beat Everaard at Musselburgh in December but the handicapper appears to have a grip on him now and chaser Delgany Gunner may not last home. Romany Ryme is still chasing a first success under Rules.
