Verdict

PLENTY POCKET hasn't been seen since finishing tailed off at Kempton on Boxing Day but was only beaten five lengths when third to Molotof in a Listed event at Haydock earlier and would take all the beating here if reproducing that form. Archie Rice has won eight times on the Flat but is struggling to get off the mark over timber and was outpointed by a 33/1 chance at Fakenham on his latest outing while Tuscan Gold may find this an insufficient test of stamina. Constant Contact could be open to improvement and is preferred to the exposed Umoristic of the remainder.
