Verdict

Most of these have a bit to prove at present with Upham Atom and The Falklander both hitting the deck on their latest outing. Rif is a winner over hurdles here but has been well beaten in two runs over fences, while there is no guarantee that Picture In The Sky will reproduce his latest second at Wincanton. RATE OF KNOTS would prefer a bit further but the stiff nature of this track will bring her stamina into play and she's only been raised a couple of pounds since going close at Ffos Las last month. Jonjo O'Neill's mare can end her losing run at the main expense of Ammunition, who likes it here but may just need his first run since the spring.
