Verdict

THORNCLIFFER won at Wetherby in December and has been placed in his last couple of starts at Leicester and Huntingdon. He gets 9lb from the hat-trick-seeking Quayside Court and that may be enough to see him get his head back in front as Claire Dyson's course winner is probably more effective on quicker ground. Doubletoilntrouble is tried in blinkers in a bid to get him back on track and he should prove best of the rest as Himayna has had numerous chances and Monroe Park still has a bit to learn about jumping fences.
