Verdict

Drom was well supported on his debut for Robin Dickin at Towcester on Sunday and galloped on strongly after making all. A 7lb penalty won't help but he's a threat now he's found his form. ESTEEM is also penalised for a comfortable success at Ludlow last week where he was always travelling like a winner. He's still on a very fair mark, however, and his jockey's claim should be enough to complete a quick double. My Faithful Annie is another who has slipped down the weights and she gained her first success over fences when beating Kinkeel at Huntingdon but a line through the runner-up gives her a massive amount to find with Drom. Cesium was in superb form around this time two years ago and looked on the way back with a decent effort over hurdles last week.
