Verdict

Champagne Bob has all the tools needed to defy top weight, as he's gone well under big imposts in the past and is in decent form. Jack Nevison can be forgiven his effort over an inadequate trip at Pontefract and ran well at Chelmsford on Saturday, but preference is for GABRIELLE. Jon Scargill's mare had gone agonisingly close to victory on her last two starts at this venue and can gain the victory her course form richly deserves.

Verdict

GARTH ROCKETT shaped as if still in good form at Kempton 2 weeks ago and went close off this mark at Leicester in the summer. Gabrielle was a good second over C&D last time and is next best ahead of Champagne Bob.
