Verdict

May Be Some Time reappears following a winter break and will do better when the ground dries out. Kazlian was clear when falling over fences at Fakenham last month and can race off the same mark over timber. Konig Dax incredibly beat Douvan in the French Provinces in 2014 but finished tailed off on his UK debut at Catterick more than a year ago and hasn't been seen since. HOLLYWOOD ALL STAR won at Bangor and Uttoxeter in December. He's struggled off higher marks since but this looks a decent opportunity to get back on track.
