Verdict

Risk Challenge will be fancied to go one better than when runner-up at Ffos Las last month and makes more appeal than Commit To Memory, who was already struggling when brought down at Newton Abbot last time. Heir To Be is in the veteran stage now and was pulled up at Newton Abbot last time, though would have every chance if recapturing the form he showed in the autumn. Direct Flo drops into a seller for the first time and wouldn't be without hope but we'll give another chance to WATCH OUT, who is 3lb higher than when third over 2m here last time but stays this longer trip and is still well treated on a couple of bits of form earlier this year.
