Verdict

This looks like a pipe-opener for useful staying chaser Galaxy Rock but he's not badly treated over timber. Trackmate is upped in distance and grade while Rossmore Lad has been pulled up in his last two starts and has a bit to prove now. Mavalenta has been put up 4lb following her second at Market Rasen which means she only receives a pound from AIMIGAYLE. Suzy Smith's likeable mare has won over 3m1f so it's worth taking a chance she'll stay the extra quarter-mile and she's rated 9lb higher over fences. She's preferred to Only Witness who won over fences at Ludlow and Huntingdon last season but lost his way in the spring and his last win over hurdles came off a 17lb lower mark.
