Verdict

Colin Tizzard has two live contenders here with MOLINEAUX in particular boasting very strong claims after two good runs to start this season. There is no shortage of dangers however and lightly raced pair The Welsh Paddies and Polly's Pursuit are both likely to be capable of better in the coming months so they are among the most likely of his rivals.
  1. Molineaux
  2. The Welsh Paddies
  3. Polly's Pursuit
