Verdict

A tricky opener as several of these have been struggling to get their head in front. Forty Five has gone back up in the weights since finishing third at Ludlow, while Robin De Creuse has been placed six times in a row over hurdles and fences and started favourite in his last four outings. Francis Du Mesnil is on a long losing run and Rich Lord was pulled up on his latest start at Haydock and may struggle to see out this trip. Nosecond Chance has disappointed since winning over 2m at Hereford so we'll give another chance to JUNIOR JACK. Daniel Hiskett rode the bottom weight into third place behind Corkage over C&D last month and a similar effort today would give him every chance of opening his account over fences.
