In the 4.35 at Leicester, Some Finish is by the leading British jumps sire Kayf Tara and, after a slow start, has found some form over regulation fences in recent months. Robin Dickin’s 7-year-old failed to complete on his first two attempts over the larger obstacles, at Taunton and Uttoxeter, in January, but has since won twice over 2 miles 4 furlongs on this course and looks reasonably treated for his hat-trick attempt. A 7lb penalty is offset by a drop back into 0-100 company and he faces fully exposed opposition.
The 5.10 is probably best left to Dineur, now in the charge of Mickey Bowen after spells with Peter Bowen and Alan King. The 10-year-old was rated 137 at his peak and, although in decline, made a solid start for his new connections when second of nine, beaten 5 lengths, behind Night Alliance on his hunter chase debut at Ffos Las last month. All his wins have come over 2 miles 5 furlongs or shorter, so dropping back in distance could be a wise ploy.
