In depth

Verdict

A big field but not many arrive in decent form. Tisfreetdream is one of those but he'll find this tougher than the amateurs' race he won at Ludlow last month and DANCING DAFFODIL is preferred. Robin Dickin's mare is a winner without a penalty having taken a conditionals race last week with any amount in hand. She can take advantage here before the handicapper has his say. Prince Pippin is not badly handicapped compared on his best form while Artic Night can race off the same mark as when scoring at Carlisle last December. I Know The Code drops down a grade and has outside claims but the rest have plenty of improving to do to figure.
