Verdict

Mr Chippy won for the first time under Rules at Ffos Las nine days ago. He may well be capable of better now upped in trip but won't find this easy under a penalty. NELLIEDONETHAT is very capable of going close here off his current mark as he was always struggling to go the pace when pulled up behind Domoly over a shorter distance a month ago. Lucinda Russell's 11-year-old is 14lb better off at the weights now and back over his best trip. Billsgrey should strip fitter for his third over C&D last month and may prove the pick of the remainder as neither Treehouse nor Panthers Run are particularly well handicapped.
