Verdict

BELLFLOWER BOY has found a new lease of life, winning a Taunton seller last month before finishing second in a handicap chase at Leicester. He did finish behind Arrayan in a claimer at Taunton three runs ago but can reverse those placings over this longer trip and get back to winning ways. Dontpaytheferryman has been taking on much better opposition and shouldn't be ignored, though the extra half-mile is a worry. Course and distance winner Likearollingstone also has a chance at the weights and easily has the beating of Flemi Two Toes on earlier form but Not Til Monday is likely to struggle on these terms.
