Verdict

This looks tricky as Mogestic has shot up the weights since winning easily at Warwick and is also untried at this level. KINGSMERE is in the veteran stage but hinted at a revival at Market Rasen earlier this month and could be the value as Kaysersberg hasn't had much racing over the last 12 months and still looks high enough in the weights. Easter Day also needs some help from the handicapper but Exeter runner-up Rolling Maul looks to have fallen to a decent mark, though was behind the selection at Cheltenham last month. Weststreet had plenty in hand at Bangor last time but all of his form is on much softer ground.
