    Verdict

    Rileyev attempts to follow up his win at Hereford on Monday under a penalty but Venetia Williams' six-year-old had taken nine attempts to get off the mark over fences and may not be as progressive as you would expect. Jeczmien has won at Folkestone and Taunton since the turn of the year but is probably worth taking on off this much higher mark, while Papradon returns from a break and seems to prefer a quicker surface. GOLDEN DUCK may be an 11-year-old but is very lightly-raced for his age and only 2lb higher than when just caught over 2m3f at Taunton last month. A drop in distance could suit Nick Williams' gelding, who is fancied to return to winning ways here. Trooper Clarence won over hurdles in the French Provinces and his recent fourth at Ffos Las suggests he has a future over fences so he could provide the main danger to the selection.
