Verdict

Jump Up has struggled over fences so far but may be capable of better with the ground drying out. Richard Johnson knows how the get the best out of dour stayer The Last Bridge while Bishophill Jack has shown signs of life lately. Craiglands can get much lower in the weights but is still struggling to get his head back in front. No Through Road had Tin Pot Man behind at Ffos Las but has yet to prove his stamina over this longer trip. Little has gone right for WHAT A GOOD NIGHT since he scored at Stratford in October but the handicapper is starting to show him some mercy and the better ground will help. He could easily come back to form in a race like this off today's mark.
