Verdict

King Massini just lost out at Ludlow under his penalty yesterday but it will be a surprise if he's turned out again quickly here under a big weight. Fast going clearly don't bother SMART CATCH over course and distance last month and he's only 3lb higher today. Tony Carroll's charge can complete a quick double ahead of Huntingdon runner-up Riddlestown, who was still beaten more than 20 lengths. Ifyousayso became rather disappointing over hurdles last season after winning at Carlisle but still has time on his side while it will be interesting to see how West End copes with the larger obstacles.
