In depth

Verdict

Kandari has been placed in both runs so far over fences and would certainly have a chance in this while Ros Castle hasn't done a lot wrong over the larger obstacles, though has been raised a further 3lb since finishing second at Kelso. Both of Quite The Man's wins so far over fences have come at Perth but he's starting to look well handicapped again and showed a bit more in blinkers at Haydock last time and is preferred to Diamond Frontier, who has lost his way, and Alpha One, who has a bit to prove in this grade. CATEGORICAL has been below par so far this term but this is more his trip and he's undeniably well treated on his best form. We'll take the Reveley veteran to get back on track here.
