Verdict

Musselburgh winner Ballycolin has claims here, despite his big weight, and looks a better bet than stablemate Dodgey Dream while Rolecarr was just starting to find his second wind when unseating his rider at Newcastle last time. After a lay-off, Isla Pearl Fisher wasn't unfancied at Newcastle last month and still had every chance when unseating his rider three out. He's another to consider but SUPER ALLY looks a progressive type and won't be fazed by the switch back to fences having won over a longer trip over hurdles here at the start of the month. Andrew Parker's six-year-old is still at the right end of the handicap and can score again.
