Verdict

CHOOKIE ROYALE appears to be holding his form better than most of these. He scored at Doncaster before going close again at Thirsk last time and looks a safer proposition than Emman Bee. The latter has struggled off higher marks since scoring at Newbury while Llewellyn does his winning in sellers these days. First Class Favour has failed to figure since a victory at Carlisle in August and today's testing ground is not ideal for Triple Eight but Piceno could be thereabouts if in the mood.
