Verdict

This is little better than a seller, indeed top weight Bathcounty was well beaten at the lowest level at Market Rasen in June when behind Wom. Neil King's charge has been holding his own in handicaps lately and must go on the short-list for this. Swift Escape was placed in maiden hurdles at Worcester and Bangor before disappointing here last time while Knockgraffon Lad has made the frame in his last two starts, though has now had 16 attempts to open his account over timber. PRICKLES looked in need of the run when well behind Wom here last month and performed accordingly. She'll strip fitter now, however, and may be value to turn the tables on 7lb better terms as she likes this track and the softer ground is in her favour. Richard Woollacott's mare gets a tentative vote.
