Verdict

ENTER PARADISE looks to have a good opportunity. A winner over fences earlier this year, he went close to opening his account over timber when runner-up to Hold Court at Ludlow and Charlie Mann's charge gets the nod to go one better. Chargen has been placed on numerous occasions and should be in the mix once again although the less-exposed Hot Whiskey won't be far away either judged on his debut effort at Wincanton in October. Vintage Kid has shown some promise and point-to-point winner Woodford County is worth a second look on his debut under Rules.
