Verdict

GEORGE BENJAMIN was able to get his head back in front dropped into claiming company at Catterick last time. He may well go in again here now he's rediscovered winning ways. Flynn's Boy has the past form to figure but has been below par in both starts this term while Spinning Ridge recorded his only victory on Turf over this C&D last season but is 14lb higher in the weights today. Sir Bruno is another who could figure if he puts his mind to it and he posted a slightly better effort recently.
