Verdict

It was disappointing to see TOP VILLE BEN surrender his unbeaten record at Market Rasen but he’s reunited here with Jeremiah McGrath, who has ridden him in all of his wins to date under Rules, and can get back on winning track. Resolution Bay looked beaten when falling back in novice company at Taunton but still looks the danger as Rodeo Dodo was left in splendid isolation when successful in a modest point-to-point at Bandon in February. Bumper winner Bolving is open to improvement and looks the pick of the remainder.
