Everdon Brook ground out a C&D victory in the second division of a handicap nine days ago but Well Mett was only beaten a neck in the first division of the same race which was run in a much quicker time. Fergal O'Brien's charge should be thereabouts again today. Go Amwell and Pairc Na Gcapall stay well and are others to consider while Victor Echo was only beaten a nose at Uttoxeter earlier this month off today's mark. He's preferred to the disappointing Genstone Trail and Dancing Dude, while Lodgician may be getting a bit long in the tooth. WHENEVER is suited by a test of stamina and is gradually being eased towards a decent mark. He beat Well Mett at Warwick in March and McCoy's persistence should see him in the firing-line here.
