Chris Wall has his string in fine order just now and KINDEST is fancied to keep the ball rolling in the finale. Full Victory, West End Lad and Tanforan have the ability to be effective at this level and complete the shortlist. Tanforan is a course and distance winner that is holding his form well. However, this is tougher than a few of his recent assignments and he may struggle on these terms. West End Lad has won here three times, so obviously raises his game at Nottingham. He will need to do so again today and has a bit to prove under top weight. Full Victory, on the other hand, has won off higher marks than his current rating, so is no forlorn hope this afternoon. However, the pieces are falling into place for Kindest, whose Haydock success has already been boosted by the runner up winning at Carlisle on Sunday. George Baker knows the filly well and his patience in the saddle is fancied to reap more reward for supporters of Kindest in Nottingham's lucky last.
