Verdict

Delightfully is suited by very testing conditions though she did manage to score on quicker ground at Newcastle in November. She could be a little high in the weights, however, and FORTY CROWN looks the one to be on. John Wade's charge was having only his third start over timber when scoring at Kelso and makes his handicap debut from what looks a fair mark. Solis has won twice in 35 starts over hurdles though he's only 2lb higher than when last successful while the veteran Dawn Ride was in excellent form at this time a year ago and can be forgiven his latest runs after a long break. Leac An Scail has been chasing but is equally adept over hurdles and would be a threat if repeating last summer's form while Agglestone Rock could go well if anywhere near the form that saw him twice successful in April 2011.
