Verdict

A 9lb rise for winning at Doncaster proved beyond Oh Right and he could only manage third at Musselburgh last time. Although he wasn't beaten far and may well figure again, preference is for SWINGBRIDGE. Chris Grant's charge was sneaking into contention when falling on his chasing bow at Catterick earlier in the month and can come good with a clear round. Smart Catch has lost his way since scoring at Leicester in November while Dancing Dude is having his first start since 2012, though is rated much higher over hurdles than the other chasing debutants.
