In depth

Verdict

Tim Vaughan wastes no time bringing out ALLTIMEGOLD under a penalty as he'll no doubt go up by more than 7lb for a facile victory at Ffos Las. That was his first run over fences on good ground so with conditions again in his favour he can follow up. Lerichi Belle was having her 18th start when finally getting off the mark at Worcester where she made all for a 15l victory. The ground had some give that day so some rain would aid her cause. Johnny Yuma, who was a further 2l back in third, didn't enjoy the conditions having completed a double on good going a year ago and with an 11lb pull he can get very much closer. Lucky Robin hasn't transferred his hurdles form to fences so far and Primogeniture has never won over jumps.
