Verdict

After three poor runs, Tuskar Rock had dropped to a very low mark when battling to victory over Inthejungle at Lingfield and an extra 4lb here shouldn't prevent another big run. Cashel Blue made all in very testing ground over hurdles at Newbury before failing to cope with the useful Quinz over fences at Exeter. He's only had three runs over the bigger obstacles and can still improve. Lorum Leader's last success over fences came from a mark of 120 at Market Rasen in November 2009. He's now down to 106 and has done a little better on his last two starts. SULTAN FONTENAILLE returned from over two years off to score on his debut for David Pipe over this trip at Taunton in December. He just found 2m3f at the same track on the short side when touched off by Magic Marmalade last month and can get back to winning ways over this more suitable distance.
