Verdict

Upton Mead and his young conditional rider have been making hay of late but he is up 15lb for two recent wins and this looks a somewhat tougher assignment. He remains one for the shortlist, whilst Tchang Goon is once again way out of the handicap and Lough Coi has landed both successes this term on heavy ground and faces a demanding ask off topweight under faster conditions. Weston Lodge has yet to reproduce his hurdling form in three runs over fences but these remain early days and the likelihood is that he will do so sooner or later. However, the vote is awarded to LAST SHOT for the Venetia Williams team. He boasts plenty of fencing experience to his name, has posted some perfectly acceptable form in the book without winning and should very much appreciate this drop in distance on the evidence of his latest effort at Huntingdon when weakening late on over further.
