Verdict

It's difficult to drum up much enthusiasm for any of these but there is a possibility that TOM O'TARA is well treated if jumping a little better than he did at Worcester last time. He gets a tentative vote ahead of one-paced Ffos Las fourth Smiling Lady and Rebel High, who didn't get up the hill here last time. Moulin Tour may need this while Strathcal appears to be going backwards and none of the others make much appeal.
