Verdict

Knock A Hand won off today's mark at Carlisle in December but has disappointed in a couple of subsequent starts. Definite Memories failed to cope with Baby Shine at Newbury last month but had rattled up a hat-trick including a win on his chasing bow at Uttoxeter before that. Venetia Williams has a few on today's card with decent claims and RENARD D 'IRLANDE is one of them. He finished a creditable third to Indian Castle in a tougher chase at Cheltenham last month and looks sure to make a bold bid racing off the same mark in this. Titchwood is another with a chance if forgiven a below par effort at Ffos Las in December.
