Stagecoach Jasper was the one who unseated Ryan Mania the day after he won the Grand National and connections will be looking for compensation but FORTY CROWN had a progressive profile before failing to get home over 3m1f at Carlisle. This is his trip and any further rain would aid his cause so he gets the nod. Candleford was in good form between the flags before a fine effort over 3m here earlier this month and looks a big threat with his low weight. Hurraboru ran well behind Purcell's Bridge at Carlisle and can also get involved, despite his big weight.
