Verdict

Tahiti Pearl was an early casualty in last week's Topham and has a better chance here but Viva Colonia is hard to win with and Bless The Wings is out of form. Headly's Bridge is on a hat-trick after back-to-back victories at Newbury and Towcester but steps up a further grade here. Solix never figured at Cheltenham but had run well earlier at Doncaster and Sandown, though this looks a bit short nowadays. TAP NIGHT started favourite for a Grade 2 novice event at this meeting last year and only found the useful Radjhani Express too good. He's been set some stiff tasks this season and might appreciate the easier grade.
