Verdict

TAVALU was 5lb out of the handicap when gaining his first success over fences over this trip at Leicester last week. He can run from his correct mark here and with his young rider claiming 5lb he looks ready to score again. Kavegirl was making her chasing debut when third at Wincanton last time but that was over 3m2f and she looks more of a staying type. Catch The Rascal has the ability to win a race of this nature but her jumping has let her down on too many occasions while Whitcombe Spirit will need to put in a much better round of jumping than he did at Lingfield if he's to get involved in this.
