    Verdict

    Gentle George reversed earlier Huntingdon form with Freddies Return when scoring over a longer trip at Warwick last time and should be prominent again. Double Bank has been a prolific winner between the flags this season and may have improved since last racing under Rules while Catch The Rascal is another recent point-to-point winner. But KIRKLEIGH should take all the beating if reproducing the form he showed when outpointing Combe Hill at Wincanton in January. Both the third and fourth have won since. Veterans Benefit Night and The Bosses Nephew may be found wanting again.
