Verdict

It was soft ground when CHEAT THE CHEATER finished third at Chepstow recently. A conditional's 10lb claim will help him plough through the mud here and he gets the vote. Long Wave also ran well when third at Uttoxeter on last month's reappearance and both the above have a fitness advantage over Titchwood, a bumper winner at this track in March and having his first start since. Point-to-point winners Safferano and King Massini are others to note.
