Verdict

Any market support for the returning Petrou would be interesting but, like Dolly Diamond, he might need this. Bermeo was in good form over hurdles and fences last summer but is another returning from a lengthy absence. MISS MASH (NAP) was back on song at Market Rasen in March and, despite a 4lb rise, looks the one to beat in this on her best form ahead of veteran I'llhavealook and Chevalgris, who has gone close the last twice but is now 5lb higher.
