Verdict

To all intents, this is a match, so hopefully Jimmy Breekie will stand his ground if also lining up at Aintree on Friday evening otherwise we'll have a most uncompetitive event on our hands. Official ratings suggest that the Crawford trained horse has 3lb in hand with ENZANI on these terms (128 vs 121), but there's the possibility that the McConnell raider might just have too much toe for his market rival over this trip of 2m, and he has the able assistance of Richard Johnson to do the steering.
