In depth

Verdict

VIOLIN DAVIS had obviously learned from her first run over fences at Exeter as she jumped well when easily justifying favouritism at Newbury last month. Harry Fry's mare should follow up here with Ryan Mahon's claim halving her penalty. Tara Rose is the one most likely to chase here home as she's already finished second at Ludlow and Leicester. Sussex Sunset will strip fitter for her run in a jumpers' bumper at Wolverhampton but winning pointer Feisty Lass hasn't shown much so far under Rules.
