Verdict

Tamarillo Grove made all to hold off the reluctant Grey Blue at Newton Abbot earlier this month but has been raised 9lb and the runner-up's trainer, Nicky Henderson, should know where he stands with SPRINGINHERSTEP. The latter was second in a better race over course and distance in May and races off the same mark today. She's preferred to the frustrating Edmaaj and Dealing River, penalised for scoring at Southwell nine days ago but ahead of Edmaaj on her previous start. This may be too tough for Lyssio and Ladies Dancing.
