Verdict

SOUTHFIELD THEATRE showed progressive form over timber last season ending with a victory over 2m4f at this track. Paul Nicholls' charge can take up where he left off and go in again. Three times a winner over fences, Ballyallia Man is having only his third start over the smaller obstacles and should go well, as should Ascot maiden hurdle winner, Forresters Folly. Gilanto wasn't disgraced in a bumper here back in April and Patsys Castle should have come on for his recent comeback at Huntingdon.
