Verdict

Handsome Buddy bids to follow up last month's course and distance victory off a 9lb higher mark and should be thereabouts again but a few have decent claims in this including the returning Royale Knight, who rattled up a four-timer in the autumn, and March's Ffos Las winner Waltzing Tornado. Veteran Rifleman could also play a part but this may be too far for Oranger while Derwen Pryde needs forgiving a poor run at Chepstow. HEEZAGREY is high enough in the weights but Ollie Garner takes off 7lb and he's more than capable of winning this if in the mood.
