Raslan makes no appeal in his current form and it's a while since Kangaroo Court troubled the judge, though he ran a little better at Cheltenham in April. Go Amwell is well handicapped nowadays and Timmy Murphy rode him into second off a higher mark at Newbury in February while Invisible Man, I'm The Decider and Home have both been in good form over fences and shouldn't be ignored. Red Not Blue has won four of his last five starts and both Fade To Grey and Strumble Head are capable of making their presence felt off a low weight but this may be best left to GREAT MATES. Already successful twice here over 2m4f, he looked ready for a step up in trip when fourth here at the start of the month and is still on a decent mark.
