The veteran BORIS THE BLADE isn't the most consistent but is well up to this at his best. He reverted to hurdles at Sedgefield earlier this month and pulled off a shock victory so, as he's now 9lb lower over fences, a quick double looks on the cards. Mansonien L'As had been in excellent form prior to a very poor effort when fancied at Sedgefield. He would have an obvious chance if returning to anything like his best. Fozy Moss landed a novices' handicap at Carlisle last month but hasn't picked his feet up in his two subsequent starts while the ground could still be on the soft side for More Equity.
