Verdict

Overnight Fame has been creeping up the weights again despite not winning. But Aodhagan Conlon's claim should help him here and he won't be far away again. ITOLDYOU has been running well over longer trip here recently but today's going will turn this into a stamina test and, as he's proven on heavy ground, Linda Jewell's charge looks the one to be on as Upton Mead blotted his copybook when refusing at the first at Fakenham on New Year's Day, though Richard Johnson takes over from an amateur here. The other three have plenty to prove on recent form.
