Verdict

With Sandown abandoned, LORD PROTECTOR now looks sure to line-up. He's worth sticking with even though he's been raised 11lb since scoring at the Esher track last month. Philip Hobbs' seven-year-old is lightly-raced and should be capable of further improvement. Maller Tree revelled in the mud at Fakenham on New Year's Day but has more to do here under a penalty. Weather Babe ran a cracker behind Highland Retreat at Kempton and is back over her winning trip but Silsol doesn't look to be one of Paul Nicholls' brighter prospects, though did win on heavy going on the Flat in France. Jumps Road, eased in class, and Ffos Las winner Society Shares aren't without a chance in a tight handicap.
