Verdict

Barrison opened his account over fences at the first time of asking when winning at Wincanton. He's been raised 8lb for this handicap while Jaja De Jau was less impressive when fourth at Worcester on his chasing bow. Carobello unseated last time having won at Fakenham before that and The Absent Mare will need to step up on last month's third over track and trip to figure. It's tempting to overlook FIFTYONEFIFTYONE at first glance but he's been competing in better company and has tumbled 15lb down the weights this year. He may well return to form in this and gets the vote.
