Verdict

DARE ME can't remain a maiden over fences for much longer and, though he'll need to jump better than when a beaten favourite at Exeter 11 days ago, is probably the one to beat at the weights. Wings Of Smoke has some decent form to his name but was pulled up in a handicap at Doncaster last time while Kandari made an early exit at Kempton two weeks ago and has a bit to prove now. Shadows Lengthen was staying on when blundering and unseating his rider at Kelso earlier this month, however, and could go close here with a clear round as he'd been impressive at Sedgefield earlier.
