Verdict

LOVE THE LEADER arrives on a four-timer after a very easy victory at Hereford on Monday. He'll go up much more than his 7lb penalty when reassessed so should go in again. Ryalex is also penalised for his facile success at Carlisle last week and he's another likely to be hit harder than his penalty so has to be a threat. Useful hunter-chaser Hard Station returns after a long break and is up against two in-form rivals while winning bumper and hurdler Cougar's Gold hasn't made much progress over fences so far and shock course winner L'Es Fremantle is out of the handicap.
