Verdict

Cheers For Thea has been struggling at the weights since scoring here in December but the assessor has dropped her to what looks a very fair mark and she must be a threat to all. Silver Alliance had been in good form without quite managing to get there before scoring here at the beginning of the month and a 3lb rise shouldn't be a problem but it's TRAVELLING who is handed the vote. Tony Carroll's filly scored at Lingfield last month and came up against a potentially well handicapped performer in Buckland when beaten over 1m2f at Kempton last week. Faithful Ruler is a multiple winner around here though generally at a lower level while Follow The Flag is a very rare winner these days.
