Verdict

Allow Dallow and Master Todd have the best form in this but the former was well beaten at Wincanton after being pulled up when a hot favourite for a lesser contest at Exeter in January while the latter is already a nine-year-old and had plenty of chances last season. He was pulled up on his reappearance over fences. ROBBERS ROOST was no match for Doctor Harper at Fakenham last month but still finished ahead of previous winner Saffron Wells and has more scope than his likely market rivals and stablemate Always Archie.
