Verdict

Tearsofclewbay had a hard race when second at Lingfield on Tuesday. It must be a worry that she’s turned out quickly again here, though she wouldn’t be running if Philip Hobbs wasn’t happy with her powers of recovery. GOLDEN VISION get the nod, however, as she was in decent form in France at the end of last year and Dan Skelton will probably eke out further improvement. Vive Ma Fille ran well on her hurdling debut at Wincanton but didn’t far so well next time at Huntingdon. Becky The Thatcher has no form on going this soft but All My Love is interesting as she rarely ran a bad race on the Flat, winning two of her 20 starts.
