Verdict

Most of these arrive struggling for form so the vote goes to chasing debutante SHAN VALLEY. She's been thereabouts over timber of late and is preferred to Turf Trivia. The latter won over course and distance in February but was tailed off last time having fell at Catterick before that. Robin's Command finished closer at this track in between a couple of poor efforts and may figure while there's little between Cloudy Deal and Mister D on hurdle ratings and both are having their fist start over the larger obstacles.
