    Verdict

    Liam Corcoran's JANUARY has harshly been raised 7lb for his win at Hereford last month on his British debut but the opposition today does not look to be particularly strong and he can defy the rise in the weights, getting the vote to win again. Tigh Bhruadair fell early on when making his chasing debut for Evan Williams and looks best watched following that effort, while Jonjo O'Neill's In The Zone is held by the selection on running last time and is hard to recommend. Mark Rimell's Nesnaas ran well when second to Rokinhorsescience over 3m1f at Market Rasen last month and would have claims if able to handle the drop back in trip. Wild Power makes limited appeal in a race taken to go to January.
