Verdict

TIMPO has been lightly campaigned this time around but is now on a lower mark than when successful at Towcester last season. His last two runs have been at a higher level and he is probably the one to beat in this. Midnight Dove's recent second at Towcester was his best run so far but Top Benefit has had plenty of chances and Hobb's Dream has also become expensive to follow. Von Galen hasn't raced since November but Dimpsy Time won at Wincanton last Sunday and must have every chance of following up under a penalty.
