Verdict

Rev It Up bids to follow up his Sedgefield victory off a 5lb higher mark but this looks tougher. Junction Fourteen was made favourite for one of these on his reappearance at Cheltenham but never figured. Tagrita weakened quickly at Wincanton earlier this month but Garde Fou has been knocking on the door and Little Boy Boru is on a hat-trick after scoring at Sandown and Plumpton. Tullyesker Hill beat Garde Fou at Chepstow earlier this month but David Pipe also runs UNIQUE DE COTTE, who gets 17lb from his stablemate. A P McCoy also takes over the reins on the six-year-old who looked as though he'd relish another step up in trip when scoring over 2m5f at Cheltenham on his return from a lengthy absence.
