Race Verdict

The Clyda Rover returned to the winner's enclosure over C&D two weeks ago and warrants respect off a 7lb higher rating but it might be worth siding with HOBB'S DREAM, who has been eased 6lb in the weights for his latest effort at Exeter, when a well-held fourth over 3m. Neil Mulholland's charge showed at Wincanton in March that he relishes a stern stamina test and, off 3lb higher, he looks handicapped to strike again soon. Monty's Revenge appeals most of the remainder.

Selection: Hobb's Dream        Danger: The Clyda Rover        Alternative: Monty's Revenge
