Verdict

L'ELDORADO has competed in better company than this since returning to action. He ran well for a long way in a Listed handicap at Wetherby last time and Chris Bealby's charge is fancied to come out best. Fabulous Fred found life tough on his chasing bow behind the high-class Overturn and should finish closer but Morestead failed to cope with a 7lb rise for his earlier win when third at Lingfield last time and steps up in trip today. Blackwell Synergy is likely to improve on his modest debut effort over fences at Market Rasen and three-time chase winner Irish Guard could prove best of the remainder.
