Verdict

This is a shocker and it's only by default that ISTHEREADIFFERENCE gets the nod as he will have needed last month's run over hurdles following a long break since a very good run over fences at Taunton. Katie's Massini made her chasing debut at Bangor earlier this month but ran poorly while Meirig's Dream hardly jumped a fence when pulling up at Newton Abbot last week. Theabsentmare is in poor form but could still be good enough for a place on the rostrum.
