Verdict

It's not often that Ledbury trainer Ed De Giles ventures this far north so he must think the unexposed TWENTY ONE CHOICE has a good chance of adding to his first win in a Kempton handicap last month. The three-year-old gets the nod though Cara's Request could be interesting if rediscovering his best as he's dropped to a very fair mark. Berbice dead-heated for second over 1m here last time and is probably better over this shorter trip. He has the beating of Outlaw Torn, Let's Face Facts and Cannon Bolt on that run and is also preferred to the disappointing Eilean Mor and veteran Shunkawakhan.
