GOLAN WAY fell on the first circuit in the Grand National last time but had won one of these events at Warwick previous to that. Streets clear of today's opposition on official ratings, he should have no trouble landing this with a clear round. Bay To Go scored at Fakenham last year but was pulled-up at Ludlow last month. He's won a point-to-point since and makes more appeal than Jack's The Lad, who is back over regulation fences for the first time since 2012.
