Verdict

Sunday City was all out to win at Aintree 12 days ago and may be worth opposing here off a 7lb higher mark, though should again beat fourth Ela Re. PERFECT REWARD beat little of note in a novices' handicap over C&D last time and is 8lb higher now but at least has a bit of scope, which is more than you can say about most of his rivals, and he gets the vote here. Dominican Monk was pulled up when favourite at Stratford on his latest outing, while Riddleofthesands still has a bit to prove over fences and De Luain Gorm has never won off a mark this high. Fighting Chance won at Hereford in April but weakened quickly at Stratford last month and is another high enough in the weights at present.
