Verdict

Halucha was placed a couple of times in the spring, including over a shorter trip here in April. But, like Tribal Dance, Paul Webber's six-year-old returns from a break today so preference is for DOT OR FEATHER. The latter has won between the flags and should get his own way out in front in this small field. He makes more appeal than recent Fontwell runner-up Living Proof and Salford Rose, with Tony Carroll's mare having proved most disappointing this year.
