Verdict

Menorah got back to winning ways at Taunton last month but still has a lot to learn about jumping fences and, despite his obvious class, could be worth taking on here against a couple of promising novices. KUMBESHWAR proved no match for Zaynar over a longer trip at Ascot last month but never looked in any trouble when making all at Plumpton subsequently. His jumping is improving with experience and he could be the value bet in this though the mare Alasi hasn't done a lot wrong in two runs over fences at Ludlow and Huntingdon, though this trip looks on the sharp side.
