Verdict

Kickingthelilly made the most of the drop in class at Lingfield last month when scoring by a neck. All four wins have been over 7f, however, and the revitalised LOWTHER is preferred. He was a ready winner over C&D on his latest start and with plenty in hand compared to his best handicap rating, Lee Carter's charge is taken to defy a 5lb rise. Loyalty has also tumbled down the weights but has shown no signs of improvement for it and Rugosa looks a bigger threat as his latest second over C&D was his first start since August. Ancient Greece and Copperwood look in the handicapper's grip and The Happy Hammer may struggle upped in class.
