My Flora probably should have done a little better back over fences at Kelso and may have lost a bit of her enthusiasm while it's difficult to fancy Rudigreen on his recent form over the larger obstacles. Rigidity has yet to prove he stays this far while Predateur and Willie Hall need to improve a little to figure but TAHITI PEARL is back in form and has now won four times here after last month's course and distance victory. A penalty means he's carrying a welter burden here but he may be up to the task.
