Verdict

It was fast ground when Handy Andy scored at Cheltenham in November and he's failed to figure off a higher mark in a couple of subsequent starts. Railway Dillon took advantage of a slide down the weights to score at Bangor last month and should go well again, but FINANCIAL CLIMATE makes more appeal. The latter just held on to beat Faultless Feelings here last month and has been raised 8lb for his trouble, but may still have more to offer. Ringa Bay is upped in class after scoring at Huntingdon while both Duke Of Monmouth and Bendant won lower grade chases before failing to complete on their latest outings.
