Verdict

Sugar Hiccup has gone up 33lb since her winning run began and, with AP McCoy unavailable today, she may be vulnerable giving weight to GOLANOVA. Gary Moore's charge justified strong market support when making all at Fontwell and should continue on an upward curve. He's preferred to Newton Abbot runner-up Buckhorn Tom and Sedgemoor Express, who came unstuck at Worcester last month. Chilworth Screamer is consistent but 6lb higher than when scoring at Fontwell last time and the likes of Best Boy Barney, Jeano De Toulouse and Letemgo all lack a recent run.
