Verdict

COUSIN GUILLAUME hasn't done a great deal wrong so far and may finally get his head in front where it matters today. The danger may be Coozan George, who will have learned plenty from a course and distance fifth in November and has more scope than Il Testone. Elfego Baca was second in a point-to-point in Ireland in October and makes more appeal than Amazing Eight, who only beat one home at Carlisle, of the others.
