Race Verdict

Pilgrims Lane is now just 1lb higher than when winning this event last year and could be worth a market check with the new combination of an eye-shield, tongue-tie and blinkers tried, but TAFFY THOMAS edges the vote. An offspring of Alflora, he made the perfect start to his chasing career when jumping slickly and winning in workmanlike fashion over 2m4f at Market Rasen 16 days ago and a 7lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to stop him going in again. Plumpton scorer Plunkett is another with claims.

Selection: Taffy Thomas        Danger: Pilgrims Lane        Alternative: Plunkett
