Verdict

Little Glenshee landed a novice chase at this course last time and can race off the same mark back over timber. But she could only manage third in this contest last year and RATTLIN is preferred. The latter won at Wetherby in December and has since gone close again at the same venue off today's higher mark. Sue Smith's mare also makes more appeal than Romantic Fashion, fourth in a similar race over track and trip last month. Golden Sparkle is 7lb higher than when beaten five lengths in last year's renewal but could still prove best of the rest.
