Verdict

Overlaw came back to form at Hereford in March and wins his fair share at this level. Saddlers Deal disappointed after winning at Southwell in November, however, and returns from a break, as does Tempting Paradise while Ouest Eclair struggles to get his head in front. FARLEIGH HOUSE is a genuine sort and, though he gets little respite from the handicapper, will have come on for his comeback run behind Take A Shoc's at Stratford at the end of March. He looks the most reliable option here.
