Verdict

Alwaystheoptimist scored off a higher mark over fences in June but one previous win in 24 starts over timber doesn't bode well and stablemate TANGOLAN is preferred. The latter went gone close on a couple of occasions with Paul Flynn in Ireland and can make a winning handicap debut on his first start for a new yard. Tiny Tenor has claims on his second over track and trip in March but West Brit and Odin have the more recent form having both made the frame on their latest starts.
