The Sportsman's Verdict
WORTHY FARM finished only half a length behind the winner when third on his Rules debut at Bangor back in April. If he can improve for that experience then Paul Nicholls' gelding should prove hard to beat in a race of this nature. The main threat to the selection appears to be De Name Evades Me, who has an official rating of 125 and has already had a run this season at Cheltenham, where a decent second. Captain Cargo has also displayed promise and he is the pick of the remainder.
