Verdict

A real dice roll of a handicap with all six having something to prove. A chance is taken that the return to better ground will suit SOLSTICE SON who would hold every chance if repeating his Uttoxeter run last year. There's perhaps been excuses for his efforts since and in a wide open contest, gets the vote. Antony is another that will enjoy conditions drying out and he rates the danger. Theo's Charm needs to jump better on his return to fences but isn't out of it if doing so.
