    Verdict

    Mr Love justified favouritism at Huntingdon earlier this month but conditions here will be much different and he may be vulnerable under a penalty given he has a poor overall strike-rate. Petite Ganache is also hard to win with and is still 6lb higher than when successful over a shorter trip here in January. Rose Dobbin runs two in this but Adam Nichol rides FINAL FLING, who shaped with promise on his return from a lengthy absence at Kelso and will strip fitter today though Tailspin is still unexposed over hurdles and stays well. Grand Enterprise is consistent but finds little off the bridle.
