Verdict

Pawn Star was let down by his jumping when chasing a hat-trick at Newton Abbot but could figure here if a little less wayward. The Wealerdealer has won six points and a hunter chase here so the switch back from hurdles should help but Schindler's Prince and Forever My Friend have a bit to prove at present and Houston Dynimo is on a long losing run, though thrown in on past form. On The Bridge is not without a chance but TOM NEARY has run four times here and has yet to finish out of the frame. He won on fast going over a shorter trip here in April and is only 2lb higher.
