Verdict

Marie Deja La's form tapered off toward the end of last season and she can return to action off a 5lb lower mark as a consequence. Bumper winner Thunderstorm has shown noting so far in four starts over timber while last month's C&D winner Just Beware has been well beaten in a couple of subsequent outings. He finished a long way behind runner-up LITTLE ROXY over track and trip last time and the latter gets the tentative vote in a poor handicap as both of last year's victories came over C&D.
