Verdict

Bernard Llewellyn is often mob-handed in lower-grade races around here and runs three in this. Neither Aaman nor Filatore have had a recent run but Tijori saw action at Bath last month, though is still 5lb higher than when successful at Newbury in the October. DESCARO won a seller and a claimer at Ludlow in his last two starts over hurdles and arrives at the top of his game. It's a while since he won on the Flat but he's well handicapped as a result and looks the one to beat. Neighbourhood has been in decent form on the Fibresand and looks the danger with Richard Hughes doing the steering, though Beyeh also warrants respect after a third at Catterick.
