The obviously interesting pair are Doctor Thea and BENTONS LAD, unexposed and in-form respectively. With the latter having that bit more to recommend him, he is given the verdict. The most interesting of the rest are the well handicapped pair of course specialist Tiger Twenty Two and veteran Dormouse, who may reveal why he has been persevered with if the market speaks in his favour.[Keith Melrose]

Veteran who last won for Anabel Murphy in 2015; 14lb lower returning from 15 months off and that he's been kept in training is enough to recommend a market check on first run for Olly Murphy; all wins around 2m, but seems to stay 2m3f.

Built on promise since joining this yard when winning at Southwell (2m4f, good) under Emma Todd three weeks ago; creditable third over C&D before that so no reason he cannot go well again if keeping on the up.

0-11 over hurdles, but what good there has been has largely come here including when second off 105 a year ago (2m, good); recent return from 496 days off over C&D was not devoid of promise and he's down another 5lb.

Placed in a bumper and steadily progressive in three novices, shaping as though return to further would suit at Catterick last time (1m7f, soft); this presents a much more realistic assignment and she is one to consider.
