Verdict

THE LAST BUT ONE had every chance when falling two out in pursuit of a hat-trick at Sandown. He’ll be fancied to make amends and give his trainer and jockey a quick double if all went to plan in the first. Norse Light’s latest win at Market Rasen came over hurdles but he has won over the larger obstacles, though his 8lb higher and 3lb out of the handicap. Broughtons Rhythm can improve on his third at Taunton but may need some help from the handicapper. Samson is making his fencing bow but isn’t badly treated on his hurdles form if his jumping is up to scratch.
