Verdict

Gemma Tutty partnered Saddlers Mot to victory at Southwell last time and, though she doesn't look an easy ride, the eight-year-old has to go on the short-list here in a race that probably isn't as competitive as the numbers suggest. But we prefer CILLISEAL, who beat subsequent winner Tartan Tiger over C&D on his penultimate outing and didn't appear to enjoy the heavy ground back over fences last time. Vallani hasn't run since February and usually finds at least one too good and Rhyton also reappears following a lay-off. The others need to improve on what they've shown so far.
