In depth

Verdict

Notnow Seamus was alongside the eventual winner when falling at Newton Abbot last month. But he probably still has a bit to prove over this longer trip whereas GO ANOTHER ONE (NAP) has already proved his stamina. John McConnell’s raider does carry a penalty but has run well on the Flat since landing the odds on his chasing bow at Clonmel. Lady Markby has won a bumper and a hurdle but has become very inconsistent.
