Verdict

Sin Bin went close at Taunton in March but has another 3lb to carry here. Cloudy Bob has the form to figure but wasn't at his best at Haydock last time. Copper Birch was an early casualty when favourite at Ffos Las last time but shouldn't be written off just yet. An early blunder at Stratford last time appeared to affect the confidence of SMADYNIUM but he'd finished second earlier at Catterick and Kelso and this longer trip should allow him more time to measure his obstacles. He gets a tentative vote, though it would be no surprise to see One Conemara and Teak take to fences.
