In depth

Verdict

CROCO MISTER hasn't had much racing and is progressing nicely judged on his recent close second to Truckers Benefit at Plumpton and this should prove well within his capabilities. Ouest Eclair had some reasonable form over timber but hasn't shown much to date over fences though he looks the main threat despite some poor recent form. The remaining trio are moderate in the extreme though Thorncliffer did show a glimmer of ability over hurdles.
