Verdict

A couple of recent winners will need to improve again now the handicapper has had his say. Water Garden is among them as he's been raised 14lb after a narrow margin victory at Ascot last month, while Thehillofuisneach has a 22lb raise to cope with after a cosy win at Uttoxeter. There was little between Dorset Square and the re-opposing Pettifour when the former scored at Cheltenham in November, though the latter has let the form down since, while Mr Jay Dee is up in class after his win at Huntingdon in November. SAFRAN DE COTTE has every chance on the evidence of a recent victory at Haydock as third-placed Teenage Idol has subsequently won and Henry Daly's charge gets the vote in the likely absence of Lightning Strike. The latter has strong claims after bouncing back to form at Hereford last Sunday but has a preferred entry in the 2.50 at Kempton today.
