Verdict

Stopped Out made a promising start over fences when second at Carlisle, only to fall early on at Hexham last time. He's sure to be thereabouts with a clear round, but the vote goes to EL DANCER. A Grade 2 winner over timber, he's already been placed three times over fences and was having his first start for over a year when running out of steam at Fakenham earlier this month. Lucy Wadham's charge can go one better here. The remaining trio are hard to fancy though Empress Orchid may improve for her recent chasing bow.
