Verdict

This may be too competitive for Majorca King while Fruity O'Rooney looks as though he's starting to feel his age and fellow veteran Dashing George has found life tough since winning at Fakenham last month. Dolatulo should stay the longer trip but was disappointing in a bumper two runs ago before being outclassed over hurdles at Cheltenham. Benbens is chasing a hat-trick, however, after victories at Ludlow and Wincanton but this is a further step up in class off a 3lb higher mark. COURT BY SURPRISE has given out mixed messages over his stamina in recent races but there's a chance that today's drop in distance will suit and Emma Lavelle's charge can get back to winning ways as Forgotten Gold is always liable to make at least one major mistake and Renard D'Irlande probably needs to drop a further couple of pounds.
