Verdict

Hazy Bay was left in the lead and galloped on for a clear success over the C&D in February but she's up another 9lb here and hasn't raced since. My Matilda was heavily supported on her return to action at Fontwell last month despite an absence since June of last year. She was in the firing line for most of the way until fading so should strip fitter this time. No Woman No Cry has been racing on much faster ground all year and had only three rivals to beat at Taunton a month ago but he battled on well that day and is only 1lb higher. DELGANY GUNNER has improved dramatically over fences this year and is a massive 20lb higher than at this time a year ago. He reverts to hurdling on a fair mark and his rider's claim can enable him to gain his first success over timber.
