    Verdict

    Course winner Never Forever is upped another 3lb for finishing second last time and Skyfire has been raised the same amount after a short-head defeat at Nottingham. Cross The Boss finished just ahead of Dandarrell when runner-up over track and trip recently while both Rasselas and Dream Walker also found one too good in separate divisions of the same handicap here last time. With plenty of the opposition suffering from seconditus, HAKUNA MATATA stands out as he returned an impressive winner at Pontefract last time and can go in again.
