Verdict

Last month's Market Rasen runner-up Safari Journey won off a higher mark at Newcastle last year but that was a rare success. SEAN AIRGEAD has been dropped a further 2lb since a much-improved third last month at Perth and can record a first win in three years, though The Backup Plan is also tumbling down the weights and Ballycool is back on a winning mark so can't be ignored. Ed Bailey is Go On Henry's regular pilot but the former pointer is struggling to make an impact under Rules.
