Verdict

Farocco is getting closer and looks a solid each-way bet having finished second over course and distance last time. Dual bumper winner Go Another One has only finished out of the frame once in five runs over timber and should also be thereabouts. He finished well ahead of the slightly disappointing Anytime Now at Bellewstown last summer. CHANCEANOTHERFIVE won bumpers here and at Newcastle last autumn, beating the useful Ballinslea Bridge on the latter occasion. He has also won a point-to-point so the switch to hurdles is likely to suit Keith Dalgleish’s six-year-old.
