Verdict

Volcan Surprise finished a well-beaten runner-up behind Gallox Bridge on his chasing bow and the winner has been beaten since. Tara Rose makes more appeal on her second over these fences last time and she drops back down in trip for this. Bobby Dove scored at Huntingdon and went close again when finding only Oranger too good at Ludlow a week ago. He has every chance off a 3lb higher mark but STARSKY DES MOTTES is just preferred. Vic Dartnall's charge had Kykate well behind when returning from a three-month lay-off with a good effort at Uttoxeter and this looks less competitive. Russe Blanc remains out of sorts and is easily dismissed.
