SILVERBURN ran well until falling in last week's Fox Hunters' Chase at Aintree. Presumably he suffered no ill-effects as he's turned out again quickly here and he's fancied to gain compensation and cap a good day for the Evan Williams stable. Fairwood Present was pulled up at Aintree and time may have caught up with the veteran but the six-year-old has been on an upward curve in point-to-points and gets his chance to prove himself over regulation fences. What Of It wasn't winning out of turn at Towcester and the extra half-mile won't be a problem while Presentandcorrect won between the flags recently and could prove the pick of the remainder ahead of Fernando and the returning Captain Marlon.
