Verdict

With the consistent, but difficult to win with Wazowski heading the weights, this is a clear sign that this race isn't the strongest of contests. Bingo D'Olivate has yet to really get going for Gemma Anderson, but shaped as if he's well worth a go over this trip when a never nearer 6½L third to Lucarno Dancer over 2m at the previous meeting, whilst the mare Topham Bay isn't fully dismissed in first time cheek-pieces. However, with no obvious standout performer in the line up, we'll seek some potential value with WIG WAM WIGGLE. He showed promise on his bumper debut at Newcastle in February, but has yet to translate that form to hurdles. However, he is largely unexposed in handicap company and should feel the benefit of a recent spin at Carlisle (handicap debut).
  1. Wig Wam Wiggle
  2. Bingo D'olivate
