Verdict

Theoystercatcher ran her best race so far when runner-up to Bold Raider at Newton Abbot last time and must have some sort of chance getting 9lb from penalised recent winner Dreamsoftheatre, though Jonjo O'Neill's charge will be helped by Maurice Linehan's claim. Leyland is probably better than he showed in the spring but we might take a chance on the fitness of BOLD TARA, who competed in better company last year and should have no problem with the trip having been placed over 3m1f.
