Verdict

Royal Chatelier won over fences at Taunton in January and can race off the same mark reverting to the smaller obstacles. Dom Lukka has failed to complete in three outing since scoring at Huntingdon and remains 11lb higher but Grace And Fortune has a shout on her earlier third over a shorter trip at this venue. BRANTINGHAM BREEZE was fancied to do better at Taunton last time given she'd found only a subsequent Listed winner too good in a novice event at Wincanton before that. Emma Lavelle's mare gets a chance to prove her latest running all wrong and gets the nod. Bumper winner Solstice Son is easily overlooked on his poor form over hurdles.
