Verdict

ZARU looks to have a good chance to get off the mark over fences. He won his latest start over timber at this track and showed some promise on his chasing bow at Doncaster. The testing ground is a worry but if handling it, he can get the better of Senor Alco. The latter makes his debut over fences on his first start under Rules since 2011 though he's subsequently won a couple of point-to-points and makes more appeal than another points winner in Cottiers Den.
