Verdict

TWO SMOKIN BARRELS can provide trainer MIchael Scudamore with a win in this valuable mares handicap chase. The selection stays well having won over further last time out and with the forecast going in her favour today she can follow up at the chief expense of Tara Mist who finished in front of the selection when the pair met at Leicester last month. Timeforwest remains open to improvement and can finish third today.
