A few of these might struggle to complete if the ground turns soft but stamina has never been a problem for ARNOLD LAYNE, who has won over 3m5f and is thrown in here on his best form. It's fair to say Caroline Bailey's veteran isn't the force of old but he may still have enough ability to end a losing run that stretches back four years. Bardolet is back on a winning mark but was well beaten at Ayr last month while Sycho Fred usually finds at least a couple too good. Huckleberry was second at Hereford last month but beaten 24 lengths and is probably worth opposing here. Artic Pride is making his debut over fences but wouldn't need to be anything special to take a hand in the finish.
