Enzo's Lad has been thereabouts since scoring at Yarmouth back in April but is now 8lb higher while Meerpat was beaten off today’s mark last time having won at Haydock before that. Several have more scope than the above pair including Ffos Las runner-up Molls Memory and Chepstow second Gloweth. But GREAT MIDGE has also shown ability with placed efforts in novice company and Henry Candy’s charge gets the nod with more to come now handicapping for the first time.
