Verdict

Considering he'd been off for two years, Theophrastus ran a cracker behind No No Bingo over 2m4f here last month and the longer trip is in his favour. River D'Or is well treated on his best form, as is Bishophill Jack, while Monty's Revenge is back on the same mark as when successful over course and distance on Boxing Day. QUEEN OF MANTUA was only racing for the fourth time over fences when winning over a shorter trip here last month. She has more to do today but looks to be improving so gets the nod as Meet The Critics continues to disappoint.
