Verdict

Henri Prends Garde won twice over fences last month but it's a bit of a worry that he's dropped straight into a seller back over timber. Beech View has shown promise in better company but will do well to record her first win under Rules under top weight, while Transvestite has had his chances in this grade and is still a maiden after 19 hurdle starts. Diamanpeg has a bit to prove after pulling up at Hereford last time while Rolanta's form has gone to pieces since she won a match at Exeter in April and Cityar has also gone backwards lately. WATCH OUT is more exposed than most but has been keeping better company in the main and is only a couple of pounds higher than when a close-up third at Worcester in June. A repeat of that effort may well suffice here.
