Given the form of most of these, the fact that BREAKING GROUND managed to win here last time gives him every chance of following up.
The victory was convincing so a 7lb rise in the weights need not put the brakes on. The slight drop in trip won’t be an issue in the testing conditions.
SEA WALL and Show On The Road had a good battle here last time and there’s no reason why the outcome won’t be the same.
Despite winning, Harry Reed’s mount is actually 2lb better off at the weights today. Both horses like the track, trip and conditions and there shouldn’t be much in it.
TWO SMOKIN BARRELS has gone close on her past two outings, especially when beaten on the nod at Leicester last time.
She goes off the same mark here and will have no problem getting home in the testing ground.
JURBY was too bad to be true at Doncaster last time after winning well over course and distance in January. The ground was similar then and the standard of opposition wasn’t a lot higher.
He was a decent bumper performer too and would have every chance if bouncing back.
SECRET INVESTOR ran a puzzingly bad race at Doncaster last time where he never went a yard. It was a surprise because he had hit the post on his first three outings and looked to have real potential.
The displays of his debut at Ascot and second start at Kempton would win him this race easily.
CUCKLINGTON is dropping close to his last winning mark and that victory came over course and distance before Christmas.
He has been a little hit and miss since then but won’t mind the conditions and can get the better of Clondaw Rigger.
KALOOKI is well bred with plenty of winning jumpers in his family. Richard Johnson has an excellent record in bumpers and any market support ahead of this debut would increase confidence.
One Night In Milan looked raw on debut at Taunton and should improve with the cheekpieces on.
