Verdict

River Dragon was a disappointing favourite at Market Rasen last week but today's slower surface may suit him better, while Fentara scored in heavy ground at Hexham before a below par effort on her latest start. This is tougher than the selling hurdle Blazing Buck won at Leicester in November and Teshali makes more appeal after a trio of placed efforts, while Chamirey reverts to hurdles on his debut for a new yard. PRET A THOU is another chaser back over the smaller obstacles and as he can race off a 15lb lower mark and handles testing ground, he gets the vote to get his head back in front.
