Verdict

TAROUM keeps finding one too good but ran very well in a handicap over the C&D last time and will be difficult to beat. Archie Rice won on the Flat last month and performed with credit at Uttoxeter three weeks ago while Fintan has also been in very good form on that track where he's looked as though this longer trip would suit. Tamarillo Grove will need to find a bit more but Officer In Command is an interesting recruit to hurdling having won three times on the Flat.
