Verdict

Thedreamistillalive took advantage of his slide down the weights when winning at Folkestone last week but the veteran faces a tougher task under a penalty here. A tentative vote goes to TOP BENEFIT, third at Towcester last time and on a decent mark compared to the best of his past form. Musical Wedge should also go well with a recent pipe-opener under his belt but Brousse En Feux has reverted to type since scoring at Fontwell last month and the rest are even harder to fancy.
