Verdict

A very ordinary contest but the lightly-raced Starlet Mandy has to go on the short-list as she is only 3lb higher than her recent course and distance third on similar going. Petie Mcsweetie has shown some promise over hurdles and was sent off favourite over fences at Towcester last time, only to disappoint. Chosen Dream also ran a shocker last time, pulling up along with Seymour Alfie in the same Doncaster race earlier this month. Bernard stays well and has only found Jupiter Rex too good in a couple of recent races over track and trip. Only a pound higher than when successful at Hereford last April, he must be thereabouts but GILZEAN has more scope. With Killian Moore again taking off 7lb, he can finally get his head in front today.
