Timeform on Tweed Valley

#6 CRYSTAL BALL - Greyville R6 (14:25 BST)

CRYSTAL BALL has been given a chance by the handicapper and could be the answer to an open heat if building on her latest fourth here, with the step back up in trip likely to suit. Chatty Cathy and Roy's Novice can battle it out for the minor honours.

#3 PEARL OF SIBERIA - Greyville R7 (15:00 BST)

PEARL OF SIBERIA very rarely fails to run his race and this looks a good chance for him to gain a deserved success, with Great Dictator and Hondo heading the list of dangers.

#1 TWEED VALLEY - Greyville R8 (15:30 BST)

TWEED VALLEY has top weight to contend with in the finale, but she ran well from this mark when beaten less than two lengths over C&D last time, and a repeat of that form may well suffice here. Be Happy is feared most ahead of Nikiya.
