Verdict

DAYS OF HEAVEN (NAP) may well have beaten stablemate Golden Hoof and subsequent winner Jacks Last Hope at Aintree last month had he not made a mess of the final flight. He'd travelled very strongly up to that point and compensation awaits with Barry Geraghty resisting the temptation to switch to winning pointer Different Gravey, who is likely to need further. Coyaba was beaten a long way when second to Brother Tedd at Kempton but the winner has scored easily again since so the form could be useful. Bumper winner Ballagh, Seven Nation Army and Simon Squirrel all warrant a market check with Mirkat and Remiluc also open to improvement.
