Verdict

Opera Og's winning run came to a halt at Chepstow last month and he's been raised a further 5lb since. Al Qeddaaf was last on his reappearance and may need another run while it's difficult to make a case for Woody Waller and Quito Du Tresor on their form this season. ROSSINI'S DANCER won this last year and was also successful over course and distance in September. He's much higher in the weights now but is going right-handed again today and has shown enough over the winter to suggest he can win again off his current mark. Anay Turge won at Cheltenham last week but many of his rivals paid the price for going off too quickly and he'll find it harder here.
