Verdict

Enroller was beaten in a claimer at Worcester last time and clearly isn't the force of old while Smalib Monterg's winning run came to an end at the same track last month and he's probably high enough in the weights now. Fashionable Gal goes well here, however, as she proved over C&D earlier this month while Osgood has won on the Flat since disappointing at Market Rasen in March. RED HOT POKER may be a 10-year-old but has only had three runs over hurdles and loves soft ground. With plenty of rain forecast, last month's Newton Abbot second could be the one here getting 5lb from Hereford winner Dubawi Phantom.
