Verdict

MUSICAL WEDGE suffered a narrow margin defeat over these fences last time having won at Taunton in November. A conditional's claim negates another 4lb rise and he can confirm latest running with Lupita and land this. Thomas Wild is up 8lb for his C&D victory but that was back in March last year and last month's Bangor winner Flying Award makes more appeal as he returns to a shorter trip. Quinte du Chatelet has yet to win over fences but has slipped down the weights and showed a bit more at Fontwell last time.
