Verdict

Wheelavit is 1lb out of the handicap in a contest that makes little appeal from a betting perspective with the impossible-to-read Best yard fielding two of the four contenders, both ridden by leading jockeys in McCoy and Scudamore. Money Money Money had shown precisely nothing over hurdles before being backed off the boards to score over course and distance for which she picks up a 7lb penalty whilst Dorry K has been absent since late April when unplaced on the level at Brighton. Her best form over timber has been delivered with plenty of cut in the ground which she is not forecast to enjoy here. Choosing between the Best pair would be a random act so LYSINO is taken to score on his first outing for the Newland operation. He scored twice in the space of five days for Keith Dalgleish last month and delivered useful hurdling form for Chris Grant previously. New connections apply a first-time hood and he's a hopeful choice.
