Verdict

HAPPYGOLUCKY let odds-on backers down at Fakenham last month, seeming unsuited by the sharp track. This step up in trip looks sure to suit and he gets the nod to double his tally over the larger obstacles having scored on his chase debut/return. L'Air du Vent is taken to chase him home after his recent victory, with Fabulous Saga another interesting runner returning from a lengthy absence.
