Verdict

The handicapper bumped up Derwen Pryde 14lb after her latest win at Uttoxeter and that may do for her here. Ukrainian Star is better known as a chaser but stays well and acts on soft ground so has to be considered while veteran Rifleman looked as though he was coming to hand at Ludlow last time when just behind Derwen Pryde but ahead of Border Lad, third over a shorter trip here subsequently. TIP OF MY TONGUE has only had five starts over hurdles and his latest effort, when runner-up at Southwell, was his best yet. He's entitled to improve further over today's longer distance so gets the vote, though Acosta has a good record over today's C&D.
