Verdict

The fast-improving POLLY PEACHUM was very impressing in a Listed handicap over this trip at Cheltenham last time. She probably has a bit to find on official ratings but can put her mare's allowance to good use in this to outpace Medinas. Alan King's charge is the class act having won a Grade 3 handicap at last year's Cheltenham Festival and this is a drop in class after two runs in Grade 2s and a seventh in the World Hurdle. Southfield Theatre was only beaten a nose by Fingal Bay in the Pertemps Final and will enjoy the stiff finish here but Clondaw Kaempfer has more to do than when landing a handicap at Aintree. Clerk's Choice is also likely to struggle.
