Verdict

Tarraco makes his debut for Venetia Williams but won a minor race at Auteuil in June for previous connections and must have some sort of chance as he's likely to be more ready than the returning Digger Gets Lucky and Goring Two. NOBLE LEGEND's winning run came to an end at Chepstow last month but he wasn't beaten far and is almost guaranteed to run his race again here with the heavy ground in his favour. The top weight is the one to beat as Preuty Boy has become disappointing and Nodebateaboutit was never travelling and pulled when favourite over 3m here on his reappearance, though probably needed that. Ringa Bay won five times between the flags and twice in hunter chases. His third to Take Over Sivola in a C&D handicap wasn't a bad effort last time and he should be thereabouts if reproducing that today.
