Verdict

Key Cutter has been dropped another couple of pounds since finishing second at Wincanton while Hodgson finally got off the mark at Bangor last time and there should be more to come from Newton Abbot third Starsky Des Mottes. Waltzing Tornado won at Ffos Las in March and was only beaten a length at Worcester earlier this month but DONT TELL SAILOR is also back in form and, with Conor Ring reducing his welter burden by 7lb, seems sure to be in the mix. Bally Gunner steps up in distance after his third at Market Rasen but Turbo Du Ranch has plenty of scope over fences and could figure.
