Verdict

Clouds Of Mist hasn't raced since June but Tarabela was going well enough when falling over fences at Plumpton last month and won twice over the smaller obstacles last season. Rocky Bender was pulled up at Plumpton last time and is still a maiden under Rules but a pair of blinkers could help him concentrate more here. THEDEBOFTHEYEAR disappointed when the subject of a gamble at Taunton last time but is so well handicapped at present that she is probably worth another chance to add to her three victories to date.
