Verdict

Talkin Thomas went close at Sedgefield in October and can figure if forgiven his failure to complete at Market Rasen last time. Teo Vivo finished runner-up at Musselburgh when the favourite, Ben Akram, unseated early on and both could get involved in this. But the vote goes to MILANO MAGIC, having only his second start over fences having finished third on last year's chasing bow at Hexham. The remainder are hard to fancy on what little they've shown so far.
