Verdict

Bearly Legal makes a quick reappearance after scoring at Carlisle on Tuesday. He has every chance of completing the hat-trick but Steel Summit will be a danger as he wasn't beaten far back over fences at Market Rasen earlier this month and Degooch is a previous course and distance winner who got back on track at Sedgefield last month. HATTERS RIVER has been a bit hit-and-miss over fences so far but he has ability and form in better races than this. The handicapper has also started to show him a bit of leniency so Ali Stronge's charge could offer a bit of value in this. Major Milborne won at Newbury in December and is another with decent claims.
