Verdict

Riddleofthesands' reward for a close-up second at Huntingdon was a 4lb rise in the weights and he's only managed three places in nine attempts over fences. The top weight is taken on with OVERLAW, who returns from a long absence but will have his favoured ground and has run well fresh in the past. Maid Of Silk has also had a break but is potentially well treated on her chasing bow and makes more appeal than Topaze Collonges, who has shown very little so far either here or in his native France.
