Verdict

This is a really competitive handicap but TOY TOP makes most appeal and he is taken to get the better of Orpen's Art, What A Fella and Malapropism. The selection is a course and distance winner; in fact she scored here earlier in the month and from a good draw she is taken to follow that success up with the ground to suit. Orpen's Art is a bit better than the bare form of his last run would suggest but he has a poor draw and Holly Hall will have to at her best in the saddle if she is to get him into contention. What A Fella should be suited by the drop in trip as she failed to get home at Ayr last time over 6f, but she is an unpredictable sort and the percentage call would be to take her on. Malapropism is high enough in the weights at present and he has the worst of the draw today so he may be best watched. Course and distance scorer Jilly Why could prove best of the others, but we are happy to stick with Toy Top as our idea of the winner.
