At The Races Verdict

BIALCO returned to winning form at Kelso when bouncing back from a disappointing effort here in January and he is more than capable of handling a 3lb rise from the handicapper. Sam's Adventure is yet to show his bumper form over hurdles but is open to progression switching to handicaps for the first time, while Stop Talking has to be respected in her bid to land a four-timer.

Timeform Verdict

All five can have cases made for them but BIALCO makes most appeal after his tidy win at Kelso. Stop Talking has to be feared in her bid for a 4-timer back from a break.
