Verdict

De La Bech ploughed through the Lingfield mud last month to get off the mark and should be suited by the step up in trip. Uttoxeter third Cheat The Cheater looks an out-and-out stayer while Okafranca appeared to have plenty left in the tank when doubling up at Taunton nine days ago and will be fancied to complete his hat-trick. TOP DANCER hasn't been easy to place but rarely runs a bad race and is back in novice company today after a couple of good performances against more experienced handicappers. He could be a bit of value to get off the mark with Uttoxeter runner-up Koultas King arguably the pick of the remainder.
