Verdict

Kayfrou scored at Bangor in December and wouldn't be coming down from Yorkshire without good reason. Zafaraban probably needs softer going and though Fintan ran well at Newton Abbot last week that was in a seller. Chankillo has run some decent races and this is his trip so he should be in the firing-line but Nowweareseven was beaten a long way when fourth at Taunton last month. Winning bumper SWIFT ESCAPE hasn't run since October but is one of the few here with some scope and looks worth taking a chance with.
