Verdict

TORA PETCHA is the pick with Manjam and More Like It given as alternatives. The seven-year-old had bits and pieces of form for Reg Hollinshead during his tenure with the veteran handler and is now with Barry Leavy. Danny Cook is able to take off a valuable 3lb. Manjam represents a high percentage combination with Tony McCoy and Rebecca Curtis in the ascendancy. More Like It was a somewhat fortuitous winner of a poor ladies event at Wetherby. There is more to do here but he will like the ground. Miss Mamma Wagga is a previous course-and-distance winner so must be respected. Midnight Spirit is fresh from success at Chepstow having made virtually all. Wingull could be open to improvement. A race realistically little better than plating class but if Tora Petcha arrives at the racecourse at anywhere near full fitness, he will prove a very tough nut to crack.
