Verdict

These are a largely modest bunch but Hobb's Dream has won five times over fences, mostly recently at Chepstow in April. Sycho Fred won over 2m5f here last month but needs softer ground and Perth third Pistol Basc is just as interesting. Cloudy Dawn keeps letting supporters down, however, and Ifonlyalfie turned in a shocker at Market Rasen earlier this month, though is eased in grade again here. BOBBISOX is yet to win a race of any description but chasing could be his game judged on a promising third at Market Rasen and he's probably on a fair mark at present.
