Verdict

Snow Patrol would be an appropriate winner of this given the weather forecast but he was pulled up last month at Folkestone. Whenever and Buddy Love are both feasibly treated but are woefully out of form while Rosoff is probably better over fences, though does have bits of form over the smaller obstacles that entitle him to respect. Farbreaga won at Fontwell in October and is back in the right grade but has to concede 10lb to CUCKOO ROCK, who ran well when third at Folkestone back over hurdles. He won on the Flat last summer and may have a little scope for improvement. Capellini is only a plater but Dalrymple has been placed three times in a row and should be thereabouts again.
