Verdict

Course and distance winner High Ron may do better back at this track while Riddlestown keeps finding a bit more and should be thereabouts despite a further 8lb rise after landing a double at Towcester. Long Wave is yet another to consider on the back of a victory at Huntingdon and Knockraheen is not completely dismissed off his current mark. But this looks slightly easier than ROCKY BENDER's latest task at Wincanton and where he finished runner-up to Water Wagtail and he gets a tentative vote to go one better in an open contest.
