Verdict

Emmaslegend won by 20 lengths at Wincanton six days ago and her amateur rider's claim negates her penalty here. Suzy Smith's mare should take all the beating but it could be worth taking a chance on BORDERHOPPER. He appears to be the main reason why Graham Lee is here rather than Cheltenham and there was a lot to like about his third at Sedgefield earlier this month, though this drop in distance is a slight worry. Sambelucky won at Catterick in December and hasn't been disgraced off higher marks since but the others have very little to recommend them on recent form.
