Race Verdict

Dream Alliance has come right back down to an attractive looking mark of 125 for this handicap chase and, under the 7lb claimer Thomas Flint, it will be interesting to see how he fares. Preference, however, is for ROCKABILLY. Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge needed every yard of a similar trip at Ffos Las two starts ago and looked to be going very well under a 7lb penalty at Perth the time after before a mistake put paid to his chance three out. Another chance is given here and he can regain the winning thread if over that fall, while Humbie is also shortlist material.

Selection: Rockabilly        Danger: Humbie        Alternative: Dream Alliance
