The Sportsman's Verdict
READY AND ABLE won over C&D in October last year before falling at Newbury the following month when still in with a chance. He returns from a 190-day absence and, despite being 8lb higher, appears capable of further progression. Follow The Bear might have improvement to come after a solid return at Ayr last month, while Forecast's Uttoxeter success earlier in the month gives him a good chance.
