Verdict

Princely Player has only been raised 4lb for a battling win at Fontwell and should be prominent again but the handicapper looks to have got to Church Field. Silver Eagle is unexposed but may need this and Mickie also returns from a break, as does Thomas Crapper. Teak is becoming disappointing, as is Ixora, while Man Of Leisure had an entry in a novices' hurdle here yesterday. GET HOME NOW finished just behind Teak at Newton Abbot last time but was hampered when making ground on the home turn. On similar terms, he could reverse that for and is a tentative selection for an open-looking handicap.
