Verdict

Tamarillo Grove came back to form at Newton Abbot but this is more competitive. Rime Avec Gentil only found one too good over track and trip last month and should be thereabouts again but Thunder Sheikh's winning run came to an end at Uttoxeter and he doesn't look particularly well treated back in handicap company. It may also be worth opposing recent winners Faith Jicaro and My Lord on there terms but Tom Wade and Flying Phoenix have each-way claims. SUD PACIFIQUE has two ways of running and was well behind Tom Wade last time but he usually takes on better opposition than this and could gain a rare win here with Nick Slatter taking off a valuable 7lb.
