          Verdict

          Annie Alainn won at Uttoxeter yesterday and would carry a penalty here if taking part. She’s already been raised 18lb for an earlier course and distance win when beating several of these including Rockabilly Riot, who finished a long way back in second. CATCHTHEMOONLIGHT ran well in a higher grade at Leicester recently and won in soft ground at Hexham last month and may be good enough in this. Suprise Vendor unseated behind the selection at Hexham but is back on a winning mark while Ping won over a longer trip at Kelso last time but is upped 6lb on softer going today.
