I thought Eleanor Bob would run better than she did last time so she isn’t in good enough form at the moment to win this even if she is down another 2lb. She jumped poorly at Ffos Las so needs to leave that run well behind. I much prefer the chances of BARDEN BELLA (best price 7/4) for Christian Williams. She won for the third time over fences at Fakenham at the start of the month and if she turns up in that sort of form here she is going to take all the beating again. She is up 8lb but deservedly so and I can see her travelling strongly before staying on best. She remains lightly raced and her jumping can still improve so there is good reason to think better is yet to come. If Eleanor Bob fluffs her lines then Leverock Lass could be the one to give the selection most to think about. She needs to jump slicker though and did finish a tired horse last time so has enough to find on the balance.

I thought there was an air of inevitability about the way PATSY FAGAN (best price 11/4) won last time and given how well the second Burrows Seeside has held his form twice since it looks very solid form. He is up 5lb but looks a horse at the top of his game right now and connections look to have found a good opportunity for him to go and follow up. I thought he’d be shorter than 11/4 so there’s definitely some juice in that price. The danger is Desert Lime for George Boughey. She is lightly raced and was a very good second last time only beaten a length at the line. A repeat of that would definitely see her bang there. Like the selection Impeach also arrives in winning form but he somewhat scrambled home last time and I think he needs more to mix it with the two mentioned above. Creek Harbour best of the rest back from a break.
