Verdict

Ratify won at Towcester in November and was second at Uttoxeter a month later. But he's still creeping up the weights and has to give 14lb to LITTLE JIMMY. Tom Gretton's charge has more scope than these and rattled up a hat-trick around this time last year. He's also a couple of pounds higher than the last of those victories. Chapel House has shown signs of a revival lately but races from 7lb out of the handicap and Silver Steel also looks vulnerable in this grade.
