Verdict

A very good handicap chase where preference is for FRODON. He may have a big weight to carry here but ultimately is only 6lb higher in the weights than when absolutely routing his rivals at this course back in December, and there is no shame in how he has performed in Grade 1 company since then. With Bryony Frost still able to claim her 3lb he can return to winning ways here. Fellow C&D winner Kalondra and Traffic Fluide after recently getting back to winning ways in an easier race at Plumpton, are the main dangers.
  1. Frodon
  2. Kalondra
  3. Traffic Fluide
