Verdict

Be My Deputy only beat ODDJOB by half-a-length here 10 days ago and now has a 7lb penalty. You would expect the Pipe inmate to reverse that form today and he gets the nod. Chestnut Ben makes a swift reappearance after finishing second at Fontwell on Wednesday. He looks to be on the way back but Himayna is becoming increasingly difficult to predict and Kinkeel may have past his sell-by date. Kayfton Pete is struggling to get his head in front but is steadily dropping down the handicap and makes more appeal than the out-of-form Chapel House.
