Verdict

HOLDBACKTHERIVER took this event last season and another bold showing looks on the cards now that the cheekpieces go back on after an encouraging recent fifth at Exeter. Warwick-scorer Western Climate handles these conditions really well so rates an obvious threat despite taking a hike in the weights, while Cucklington appeals as an outsider well worth considering too off a reduced mark.
