Verdict

Eastlake came back to form when beating Rouge Et Blanc at Ascot last month while Rody arrives off the back of a win over the same horse at Wincanton on Boxing Day. Both have shot up the weights, however, while Kapga De Cerisy and Jumps Road failed to justify favouritism last time though the pair still have some scope. GEORGE NYMPTON has won both starts over C&D and Noel Fehily, on board for both victories, is in the saddle again. This appears to be his trip and he can go in again, though The Chazer is proving reliable and El Lobo will almost certainly improve on his comeback run at Ascot.
