Verdict

Dotties Dilema is a real mudlark and probably found the ground a bit too quick at Newcastle last month. His previous victories between the flags, in a bumper and over hurdles had all come on very heavy ground and connections will be out to prove that last run all wrong. BONNIE BURNETT receives 7lb and looks the one to be on. Brian Rothwell's mare has always had ability and is making steady progress over timber with her recent success at Ayr pointing to her obvious chance here. Flicka Williams hasn't had much experience and will need to improve on what he's shown to date but Brieryhill Boy made a fair hurdling debut at Carlisle and should improve enough to get involved.
