Verdict

Creevytennant won one of these events at Musselburgh in February but is inconsistent and was pulled up at Cheltenham last time. Herecomesthetruth is more reliable and looks to have every chance on his latest second at Sandown while Soulard won well at Towcester last month. But the vote goes to ALLERFORD JACK as he'll have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Taunton. Kayley Jones' charge can add to last year's four victories, though Squadron certainly shouldn't be underestimated back under Rules.
