Verdict

CONSIGLIERE has been a regular at Cheltenham in recent years but won't be going to The Festival this time. But he can give the David Pipe yard a boost by landing this as he looked all over the winner at Newcastle two weeks ago until his big weight took its toll in the heavy ground. Quincy Des Pictons has his sights lowered but has never won off a mark this high while Get It On looks to be firmly in the handicapper's grip. Kilcrea Asla showed he was no back number when winning a veteran's handicap at Haydock in December, however, and looks more of a threat than Simply Wings at the weights.
