Verdict

Ikorodu Road has his sights lowered and would have every chance here on his best form. Plum Pudding likes the mud and is another to consider if fully wound-up after a short break but Three Chords will surely need this and See U Bob has shown little since joining the Jonjo O'Neill yard. Ballyoliver's run behind Cape Tribulation at Wetherby received a boost at Cheltenham on Saturday but he remains high enough in the weights while Buddy Bolero steps up in trip after winning a beginners' chase at Exeter, though that was probably a decent contest. DASHING GEORGE is the senior citizen in this but has been in good form all season and certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Wetherby last time. He's still fairly treated and can land this as well.
