Formscan - YCCS PORTOCERVO was a comfortable winner over C&D and is hard to oppose, despite the imposition of a 6lb higher mark. The eight-year-old has been quite consistent over fences and given this doesn't look any tougher, he has a live chance of notching back-to-back victories for the first time in his career. Pens Man ought to be sharper after his spin around Market Rasen last month, while Dr Sanderson is well handicapped and also dangerous to ignore.
