Verdict

Tom Cannon rides three-times course winner Lightentertainment in a race named in the popular jockey's honour. The eight-year-old is undoubtedly well treated nowadays and is capable of giving weight to this lot if at his best, but that hasn't been the case recently. Rior has more to do than when scoring at Plumpton last month but Dollar Bill could be interesting back over hurdles and Halling's Wish is another to consider, though has his first run since October. THE GEEGEEZ GEEGEE beat Laughton Park and Occasionally Yours at Plumpton in the autumn and is weighted to do best of that trio again. He could benefit from Aidan Coleman taking over the reins from a conditional.
