Verdict

FIENDISH FLAME made short work of the odds-on Kells Belle over C&D six days ago. He has a 7lb penalty to carry in this more competitive contest but still has a much higher rating over fences and, if in the same mood, Jennie Candlish's charge should score again. Ranjobaie and Russian George may need more time, while Dhaafer has been disappointing so far this season and is now tried in a visor. Risaala is easing toward a decent mark and can figure, however, while A P McCoy has chosen the lightly-raced Christopher Wren ahead of Jonjo O'Neill's City Theatre. Nick Gifford's four-year-old beat the useful Book'Em Danno over 2m here last month and the third franked the form at Plumpton on Monday - he is a big danger to the selection.
