In depth

Verdict

CERTIFICATION gets the vote here as he had just three runs on the Flat for Mark Johnston and made an encouraging debut over hurdles behind the odds-on Dawalan at Newbury. Rawak, who finished just in front of him, already had experience over timber and may not be up to confirming the form. Investment Expert won twice on the Flat for Jeremy Noseda and a recent run at Wolverhampton will have put him straight. Chebsey Beau made a fair debut in a heavy ground bumper at Carlisle but disappointed on his next start on this track.
