Verdict

Chookie Avon likes it around here and showed himself in good heart when scoring at Wolverhampton on Monday but a penalty takes him to his highest ever mark. I Confess gained the 15th success of his career on soft ground at Beverley last month though a 6lb rise looks harsh and he's better on the all-weather. Robert The Painter made a winning debut in 2010 but hasn't won in 18 subsequent starts though he came close when touched off by High Resolution at Hamilton last time. He might find a couple of these too speedy for him and SILVER RIME, who has generally competed at a slightly higher level and was a good runner-up to Dolphin Rock when dropped into this grade at Thirsk last month, could be the one to take advantage. Liliargh was having only her fifth start when runner-up to Clumber Place at Newcastle last week and should improve enough to make her presence felt.
