Verdict

Whataboutya has a chance with a 10lb conditional on board but Tony McCoy rides stablemate Foxesbow. The latter is open to further progress over this longer trip after winning at Market Rasen three weeks ago. The same comment applies to BRENIN CWMTUDU, who returned from an absence to win his first race over fences when successful over 2m6f here last month. Evan Williams' chaser won with a bit in hand that day and there should be more to come. Crank Hill took advantage of a drop in the handicap to win over hurdles last time and he should go well off the same mark, along with recent Plumpton winner Rey Nacarado.
