Verdict

ORIGINAL PRANKSTER wouldn't have beaten Pere Blanc at Kempton earlier this month had he stayed on his feet but would probably have finished second. The winner trotted up under a penalty at Sandown a week later and Nigel Twiston-Davies' unexposed novice looks the one to beat here. Chicklemix was third at Wetherby on her hurdles bow and may not have stayed the longer trip at Fakenham subsequently. She could make the frame again here while Azione won over C&D back in 2008 and was beaten less than two lengths over 2m5f at Uttoxeter on her most recent start. Dormouse disappointed at Market Rasen after scoring at Leicester, however, and may now be too high in the weights.
