Verdict

The Gipper will be winning again once the mud starts flying and Dolores Delightful is a likeable mare. She finished ahead of Mont Choisy at Worcester in October. Tobefair has won his last four, including one over this course and distance in September. He shouldn't be ignored and Braavos should relish the step up to 3m. Awaywiththegreys runs his best races here but Wizards Bridge is hard to catch right while handicap debutant Holbrook Park has plenty of weight. CORRIN WOOD became disappointing over fences last season but ran a cracker on his reappearance over the smaller obstacles at Cheltenham and is only a pound higher here.
