In depth

Verdict

Pacha D'Oudairies generally jumps well but blundered his way around Plumpton before unseating his rider and may need a confidence booster. Backfromthecongo won a C&D handicap in January from an 8lb higher mark and though out of form has to come into the reckoning with his lowly weight but Royale Knight could just find the combination of a rising handicap mark and testing conditions beyond him. DOUBLETOILINTROUBLE has been gradually making progress and always looked like winning over the C&D last time. A 5lb rise looks manageable and he's taken to complete the double.
