Verdict

Colin Tizzard has won two of the last three runnings of the Tolworth and he has another outstanding candidate in Fiddlerontheroof who boast some strong form with his two seconds coming in races that have worked out exceptionally well. But he faces some useful rivals with HANG IN THERE looking to be one who looks a fine long-term prospect who has won his last two over hurdles and proved himself in Grade 2 company. Son Of Camas is from a yard that has done well in this race before and he should go well stepping up in grade along with Silver Hallmark both of those add plenty of strength in depth to the race.
  1. Hang In There
  2. Fiddlerontheroof
  3. Son Of Camas
