Verdict

Honourmission whipped round at the start and unseated Sean Bowen at Wincanton earlier this month but he’s one of the least exposed in this and could figure if on his best behaviour under Jonjo O’Neill Jr. Dovils Date hasn’t been disgraced since returning from a break and is a previous course and distance winner. This is a slight drop in class so he is one for the short-list but Micky Hammond’s string is going well and ROCKLIFFE has proved consistent recently and is only 3lb higher than when scoring at Catterick in December.
