Verdict

Southfield Theatre was well backed again at Cheltenham a couple of weeks ago but could find nothing extra on the run-in and basically looks in the handicapper's grip off a 3lb higher marl. SEEBRIGHT is also entered at Kempton but this is his preferred engagement. He continued his upward curve when getting up close home to beat Fast Freddy at Fontwell on his reappearance. That was a good effort under a big weight and an extra 6lb may not be enough to halt his winning run. Champagne West is improving and got off the mark in a maiden hurdle at Warwick last time. He is probably on a fair mark so looks a danger while Party Rock came right back to form at Aintree. Oscar Prairie and Upswing aren't without a chance either but this may be too far for the returning Chesil Beach Boy.
