Verdict

Some of this field are out of the handicap though Rollin 'n Tumblin is only 1lb wrong and has won over the C&D in the distant past. GOLDAN JESS is the only other C&D winner in the line-up and Philip Kirby's veteran gets the nod here as he showed himself in good form with a fine effort at Wolverhampton last time when Dane Cottage was behind. Neighbourhood's only victory came at Southwell while Turjuman hasn't won for a very long time and still has plenty of weight. Novel Dancer may be best of the rest.
