Verdict

November's Newcastle winner Delightfully has had eight runs here and is still chasing a first success. Stablemate Shooting Times returns from a break and may not appreciate the heavy going but Streams Of Whiskey likes the mud and should be thereabouts on his handicap debut, despite top weight. BORIS THE BLADE is a little quirky but was on his best behaviour when making all over fences at Newcastle on his reappearance. Only 2lb higher back over hurdles. Tina Jackson's grey could stage a repeat performance if allowed to dominate. Talkin Sence has a 7lb penalty for Saturday's win at Kelso but did it easily and can't be ignored with Gary Rutherford again taking off 5lb.
