Verdict

Alison Thorpe's Dishdasha just did enough when winning at Stratford earlier this month and has every chance of following up that success but a 6lb rise for that win does not make that easy and a better bet looks to be BEIDH TINE ANSEO, who gets the vote with Wikaala rated the best of the rest. The selection has done little wrong of late having won his last three starts in handicaps at Kelso, here and at Cartmel last time in a novices' hurdle and Lucinda Russell's gelding has an obvious chance of defying just a 2lb rise since the latest of those successes. Alison Thorpe's Ludlow selling winner Rampant Ronnie was not disgraced back in a handicap at Warwick last time but a 2lb rise for that run looks harsh, while Gordon Elliott's Right Or Wrong could probably do with some help from the handicapper. Stable companion Wikaala looks the pick of Elliott's two runners having run a decent race at Roscommon recently but it is hard to get away from Beidh Tine Anseo, who looks the one to beat.
