4 8-12
69

Full brother to I'm Very Funny, won four times at 4f and 6f. First past the post at Charles Town over 4 1/2f on his debut outing earlier this month, but later demoted to second. That was a cracking effort nonetheless and he looks sure to play a leading role in this event.

b g Hunt Crossing - Gladagate Jane (Roman Ruler)

3 8-9 (ow 5)
 - 

Half-brother to Riotous Ruler, won at 4f. Probably best watched on his racetrack debut unless attracting significant support in the betting market.

4 8-12
48

Unplaced in all five starts. Finished 4 1/2l behind Laughing Cat when fourth of 6 at 22-1 on his latest outing at Charles Town over 4f earlier this month. Improved effort on his comeback and has an each-way squeak today.

3 8-4

Placed in both starts. Third of 9 behind Fibertown beaten 7l at 3-5fav on his latest outing at Charles Town over 4f in January. Not far behind Meltech (second) that day and he is less exposed than him.

4 8-12
66

Placed in three of four starts. Third of 10 behind Rucker beaten 8l at 7-2 on his latest outing at Charles Town over 6f in August last year. Warrants plenty of respect on his first start as a four-year-old.

3 8-4

Placed once in two starts. Third of 8 behind Triple Bad beaten 5l at 9-2 on his latest outing at Charles Town over 4f earlier this month. Hard to see him reversing that form with Meltech (second), but respected nevertheless.

9 All About Tap 22

b g Super Ninety Nine - Tapforaly (Pleasant Tap)

3 8-4
 - 

Half-brother to Aaron's Tap, won 12 times at 4f and 7f. Well beaten at 13-5 behind Triple Bad when last of 8 on his racecourse debut at Charles Town over 4f earlier this month. Impossible to fancy on that evidence.

LAUGHING CAT only lost the race in the stewards' room on his racetrack debut over C&D and could gain compensation by landing the spoils in this event. Meltech has finished runner-up on four of his five starts thus far and rates the biggest danger ahead of Silver Castle, who was a place behind the last-named here in January.
