Verdict

In a moderate contest the marginal preference is for TRUMPS BENEFIT, who failed to fire at Cartmel last time but he had previously run well in defeat at Uttoxeter and Bangor. Pembroke House hit the crossbar on his penultimate outing and he merits respect on his return to action, while Peter's Portrait and The Happy Chappy are others who are capable of going well.

Verdict

PEMBROKE HOUSE isn't getting any younger but he was a good second in a 0-120 at Uttoxeter last season, so could be the way to go with his sights very much lowered on this return to action. Peter’s Portrait could easily leave behind his opening effort over fences so he’s feared, as it Trumps Benefit, who appeals as the type to bounce back quickly from a below-par effort last time.
