Dalaram, Bobble Hat Bob and Haldibari make the shortlist here, with HALDIBARI given the nod. Dalaram last scored at Stratford a couple of years ago but showed he is no back number with a couple of placed efforts recently. He would be better served by some rain.Bobble Hat Bob is a game performer and he only went down narrowly last time after a great tussle, but he is liable to go off a short price given the champion is on board. He is worth opposing in a competitive affair. Haldibari won over this course and distance in decisive fashion two outings ago and also went down narrowly at Newton Abbot recently. That was a fine display and he can return to winning ways at a nice price. Haldibari is in good heart and can score.
