Verdict

Proud Times is being kept busy and is back over fences after a fourth over hurdles at Fontwell last Sunday. He has a good strike-rate but is giving 9lb to BINCOMBE, who is better than he showed at Ludlow last month and might be suited by this smaller field. Mr Muddle has been a bit disappointing since finishing second over a shorter trip at Warwick in December but Be Definite is starting to look well treated and it would be no surprise to see Tom George's charge threatening the selection in the closing stages.
