Verdict

Chilworth Screamer wasn't beaten far at Plumpton last time and makes more appeal than Shropshirelass, who is racing from out of the handicap, and Seaquel, who races over hurdles for the first time since 2010 but has been in action on the Polytrack. My Viking Bay is only a plater but has winning form over course and distance, as does last month's Bangor third Valrene, while Dirty Deal won at Uttoxeter last month and has been lightly raced this winter. But she looks too close in the weights to ALL ANNALENA, who has been holding her own in much better company and should gain a deserved first victory of the season here.
