Two For Gold (7/2), Smarty Wild (7/2), Oldgrangewood (6/1), Le Patriote (9/1), Aso (12/1), Another Crick (12/1), Spiritofthegames (12/1), Mister Whitaker (14/1), Sir Jack Yeats (14/1), Admiral's Secret (16/1), Flowery (16/1), Louis' Vac Pouch (20/1), Gala Ball (33/1)

Verdict

There are some familiar names who have had plenty of chances in this sort of contest, but novice SMARTY WILD has more scope for improvement than most and he jumped much better when scoring at Kempton last month. Another Crick shaped well after a long absence at Uttoxeter and is another who remains unexposed back over fences. Oldgrangewood looks best of the veterans and should go well again.

  1. SMARTY WILD
  2. ANOTHER CRICK
