Verdict

THE FERICK probably came up against an above-average recruit in I Shot The Sheriff at Southwell. Also second at Towcester in October, he clearly has ability and it would be no surprise if Alan Swinbank's five-year-old made it third-time lucky today. Swinging Sultan disappointed at Aintree in October but will have needed that and should do better here, while Charlie's Vic was an easy winner at Sligo in May and is sure to attract support. Edmund has been well beaten in all three starts, however, and a better long-term prospect may be Mick Easterby's grey Few And Far, who is a half-brother to winning hurdler Black Cloud.
