Verdict

Victor Dartnall's horses are running well but Henry King continues to ruin his chances by pulling too hard. The Chazer has been raised 8lb for finishing second to Accorditolawrence at Exeter but Giles Hawkins' 5lb claim offsets a large chunk of that and Richard Lee's charge can't be ignored. Marleno won an arguably better race over C&D last month but may have enjoyed a fitness advantage over the majority of his rivals that day and is 8lb higher now. American Ladie is relatively unexposed and Switched Off was in good form in the autumn but BAN UISCE must be worth another chance after failing to stay a longer trip on heavy ground at Uttoxeter 10 days ago. He's already won over this C&D and is probably still on a decent mark.
