Verdict

Veteran Star Galaxy isn't out of this after his close second at Ffos Las. Mister Wiseman has been hinting at a revival lately, as has Lady Willa, while Timetoring is plummeting down the weights though has finished tailed off in his last two starts. OPERA OG was returning from a lengthy absence when winning a Towcester novice chase last week on his debut over fences. He has a 7lb penalty to overcome but looks a nice prospect and may be capable of giving the weights to last month's Fontwell scorer, who might prefer a bit further. Free World ran at Cheltenham and Aintree last year but has shown little for his new yard so far.
