Verdict

WESTER ROSS drops into this grade over fences for the first time since winning at Leicester in January last year. It's less than 12 months since he was finishing within seven lengths of Doeslessthanme in a Class 2 at Newton Abbot off a 13lb higher mark and will be tough to beat here if anywhere near that form. Paul Moloney prefers him to stablemates Captain Paulie and Tarkari. Tough Talkin Man has had plenty of chances while Groomed didn't beat much at Fakenham on New Year's Day. Street Dance has some decent form over hurdles and is potentially well-treated but refused when last seen over the larger obstacles in 2011.
