Verdict

IFONLYALFIE was only beaten a neck over track and trip last month and can go one better off a pound higher mark, though D'Gigi must be a danger if able to build on his second at Towcester. Cara Court has won over hurdles and fences this year but may be in the handicapper's grip now while Foot The Bill is starting to look exposed. Silas Mariner went close at Southwell at the start of the month but that may have been a fluke and he has a lot to do here under top weight.
