Verdict

REACTION and Architrave are clear at the weights. The former faced a stiff task in a handicap at Cheltenham last time but had been the cosy winner of a seller at Stratford before that and gets the vote back in similar company. The latter made a decent comeback at Exeter but disappointed at the same track on his latest start while Wom has found one too good in a couple of sellers recently and it's likely to be the same story here. The remainder make no appeal on current form and are up against it on today's terms anyway.
