Verdict

Take The Mick was a very hot favourite again at Bangor last time but soon beaten and pulled up. He reappears off a 15lb higher mark and will surely struggle again. OUR ISLAND has never really delivered over fences, managing just one victory in 18 attempts. But he's undoubtedly well treated nowadays and was only beaten a length over track and trip 11 days ago and should have no trouble confirming that form with third Raduis Bleu. Victory Gunner keeps defying his years and can't be ignored but Royal Riviera needs to jump better if he's to make a chaser.
