Verdict

David Pipe and Conor O'Farrell teamed up to win this last year and FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT can repeat the trick. He ended last season with his first victory over timber at Hereford and should continue his improvement this term. Kayfrou beat subsequent dual winner Ivor's King by a neck at Newton Abbot last time but has paid the price with a 14lb hike in the weights while Giveitachance has a penalty to carry for his victory at Worcester during the week. Man Of Leisure ran well at this track last November but hasn't raced since and recent Towcester fifth Cardinal Rose makes more appeal.
