Verdict

Twice Returned was tried over fences earlier this year but was very disappointing. He's looked happier back over hurdles lately and has a leading chance in this but we still prefer MASTER MALT, who has been making progress over timber and beat a decent field at Exeter last month. Roll On Ruby was just touched off over this trip at Newton Abbot 10 days ago and she looks the pick of the maidens ahead of recent course third Seranwen.
