Verdict

Vinnie My Boy could easily bounce back from a poor run at Uttoxeter but was a long way behind Electric Tiger, who had been beaten in lesser company earlier. GREEN BANK is only a pound higher than when winning by 25 lengths over fences at Southwell 12 days ago and is the obvious choice if translating that form back to the smaller obstacles. Carmela Maria won at Southwell last month but rarely runs two races alike while Saddlers Mot has been struggling off higher marks since winning a Wetherby seller in the spring.
