How's The Cricket (5/2), Motts Cross (11/4), Cushuish (11/2), Mystic Court (6/1), Lakeside Lad (13/2), First Assembly (14/1), Jalingo (33/1), Solstalla (33/1), Lightonthewing (33/1), Somerset Jem (50/1), Beyond Supremacy (100/1)

MOTTS CROSS proved he retains his ability 21 months on from his win over this C&D when finishing runner-up at Exeter last month. He's taken to build on that and go one better here with Bryan Carver keeping the ride. How's The Cricket rates as the main danger having got back on track at Wincanton 3 weeks ago and this significant step up in trip should suit, with Cushuish another to consider.
