Verdict

Brass Monkey, who is also engaged in the 1.20 at Huntingdon, as are Expanding Universe and Jeano De Toulouse, completed a double on soft ground before finding testing conditions too much for him when tackling 2m7f here. He's up in the ratings again and this looks too short. Reggie Perrin was racing from a 19lb higher mark at this time a year ago so don't be surprised by a much better effort. Pilgreen looked a fair prospect in maidens though hasn't been seen since March 2011 while No No Bingo's victory at Towcester in March was over fences. Explained returned to form when runner-up at Worcester in May and has more scope than most but TEALISSIO can complete a double as he looked well suited by this trip and testing conditions when scoring at Lingfield and his 5lb rise is taken care of by his rider's claim.
