Verdict

Church Field appears to be very firmly in the handicapper's grip now, though Jonjo O'Neill counteracts that by putting up 10lb claimer Tommie O'Brien. Another 10lb claimer rides less-exposed stablemate Touch Back while James Best takes 3lb off the returning If In Doubt. Urcalin sports headgear on his reappearance while it's almost a year since Oscatara last saw meaningful action, though he is still unexposed. ALL THAT REMAINS doesn't always deliver but made the well-treated First In The Queue pull out all the stops at Fakenham last time and stays this longer trip. He gets the nod ahead of last month's Exeter winner Ray Diamond.
