Verdict

Withy Mills has won twice over hurdles since the turn of the year but she's yet to be placed over fences. Powertakeoff needs to improve on his fifth at Taunton but Wicklewood has a chance on his best form, though finished behind Moulin De La Croix at Fontwell in March. MARLENO unseated his rider on his last visit here but has generally been competing at a higher level. He turned in a shocker at Carlisle last month but has been dropped 8lb since and this won't take much winning.
