Verdict

EHTEDAAM made most for a very impressive success at Sandown last week and has been raised 10lb so the fact that he goes here with a penalty is significant and a quick follow up looks on the cards. Altharoos has been making steady progress and looked well worth a try at this trip after finishing strongly to score over Beverley's stiff 7f last time. Frog Hollow looks the best of David O'Meara's pair though he's gone up in the weights despite recent defeats while any rain would greatly aid the cause of No Poppy, who only wins when there is some give in the ground.
