Ravens Brook was the very easy winner of a poor handicap at Bangor in December but went up 9lb and ran poorly at Wetherby the following month. Tiny Dancer came home virtually alone at Ayr a month ago but blundered his way around Catterick last time and was beaten a long way. Teo Vivo ran a shocker at Newcastle when last seen in December and is well held by TALKIN THOMAS on that run. The latter could do with a drop in the weights but this is a poor contest and he's taken to come out on top. Winning point-to-pointer Uppercut De L'Orne has shown nothing so far under Rules.
