Verdict

Giant O Murchu beat the in-form Bennys Quest at Stratford last month while Fearless Leader came right back to form at Plumpton, beating Alderbrook Lad who had also been in decent form. Milgen Bay is starting to look well handicapped and Dorset Naga still has plenty of scope over fences, though has been off the track for more than a year. SYNTHE DAVIS enjoys a 10lb turnaround in the weights than when third to Giant O Murchu last time. That should be enough to reverse the form and AP McCoy's presence in the saddle increases confidence.
