The best is saved to the last and there is sure to be plenty of interest in Baseball Ted in this finale with McCoy scheduled to take the reins. The 10-year-old returned to winning ways at Kempton last time and can get a tow around from the headstrong Marodima, successful over both fences and hurdles since the turn of the year. Oscar Gogo loves heavy ground and was successful at Chepstow and Ffos Las in December but we'll take them all on with OLDRIK. The going is a bit of an unknown but his defeat of Doeslessthanme at Taunton at the end of last year has worked out well and he will have needed the run behind that rival at Newton Abbot last month. The Chazer still has some scope over fences but needs to improve on what he's shown so far to figure at this level.
