Verdict

Bermondsey Bob is proving most consistent at this level and still only 3lb higher than when successful at Brighton last month. Mata Hari Blue got back to winning ways at Leicester last time but is now on a career-high mark, while Stonecrabstomorrow also looks to be in the handicapper's grip now. C&D winner Seamus Shindig isn't badly treated on his best form, however, and neither is SAFARI MISCHIEF who gets the vote. Peter Winkworth's charge hasn't won since 2008 but wasn't beaten far when dropped into this grade at Brighton last time and this is probably his level nowadays.
