Verdict

Truckers Darling was having his third start in a month when fading badly close home at Sedgefield last time. He'd landed a double in testing ground before that and may well bounce back today. But OUR PHYLLI VERA is preferred despite having to cope with a 13lb hike for winning over 2m here. She beat subsequent dual winner Clonusker on that occasion and collateral form gives her the beating of Goochypoochyprader. Last year's winner Lindsay's Dream has claims once again off a similar mark and Sudden Wish has plenty of scope back over timber having won on the Flat at Kempton last week.
