Verdict

Jonjo O'Neill tries again over fences with I CAN RUN CAN YOU and this time puts up AP McCoy, who has ridden the seven-year-old in all three of his victories over hurdles. He is 23lb lower over fences than his last winning mark over the smaller obstacles and will never get a better chance to break his duck. Plumpton third Romney Marsh has only managed win over fences but should be thereabouts again and makes more appeal than the frustrating Petroupetrov, who is now tried in blinkers. Forever My Friend won at Plumpton in September but races for the first time since being pulled up here in January.
