1.5pts win EMPIRE LEVANT 23/1 (Betfair) Betfair Hdle
1.5pts win THIRD INTENTION 14/1 (Generally available) Betfair Hdle

Empire Levant has run well on all his starts here and came up against a highly progressive animal last time who then went on to run Binocular close at Kempton. He is overall on a definite upward curve himself and at the odds available is a far more attractive proposition than stable companion Zarkander.

Third Intention travels like a classy sort in his races - and this level track will suit him far better than Cheltenham where he flattened out in the Greatwood after looking sure to figure in a big way. He has one of these valuable handicaps in him.

Lost - 3pts
