Verdict

Tigger has become expensive to follow and isn't improving, though would have finished ahead of Our Double Diamond had that one not took a heavy fall at Newton Abbot last time. Free Falling has gone up 9lb since his surprise win at Fontwell but should still confirm that form with third Flowerbud. Coolagad Wonder also won at Fontwell in August but was tailed off at Hereford next time so a tentative vote goes to MAN OF LEISURE. Nerys Dutfield's charge had placed form in better company last season and can shrug off a six-month absence.
