Verdict

Grouse Lodge was the only one to finish at Towcester on his chasing bow and he disappointed in a better race than this at Warwick last time. He still has plenty of time to get back on track and is preferred to the more exposed Netminder, but a chance is taken on ROS CASTLE. Rose Dobbin's charge hasn't been disgraced in handicaps since scoring at Kelso in October and can return to winning ways in this company.
