Verdict

Five of these arrive in winning form and one of them, CAUGHT IN THE ACT, looks the one to be on. He was having his first start for Nick Alexander when justifying strong market support in heavy ground at Kelso last month and though 9lb higher his rider's claim will be a help and a follow-up appears likely. Bollin Fiona has had a break since her victory on heavy going here in June and might find this on the short side but Stormion should make a bold bid to defy a big weight as he also scored here last time though he's another who would probably prefer further. Along Came Rosie has won twice over fences this year and can revert to hurdling on a lenient mark so she has to be considered and Lisdonagh House was having his first start since April when gaining a shock success at Uttoxeter earlier this month and should have come on for the run.
