Verdict

Whipcrackaway finished third at Sandown last month with Dollar Bill a couple of lengths further back and a conditional's 7lb claim brings him into the equation. SASH OF HONOUR was also placed at Sandown last time when unlucky to come up against the progressive Pistol once again. Beaten only a length, Tim Vaughan's charge can go one better in this. Dropzone will need to improve on February's victory at Ludlow but he's capable of doing so and is another to consider. The remainder have shown little so far and will struggle to get involved unless Lascaux proves suited to hurdling after four modest efforts on the Flat.
