Verdict

There are only six runners in this but it's probably the best race on the card, though it's probably worth opposing Greywell Boy from a couple of pounds out of the handicap. Bennys Mist has gone up another 7lb since winning the second of two races at Wincanton last month while No Planning may have been a bit flattered by the margin of his victory at Wetherby. Persian Snow has a bit to prove having gone up another 2lb since being beaten by Mr Moonshine over course and distance last time and What A Warrior has been unable to take advantage of a tumbling mark lately. UXIZANDRE faces his stiffest task so far over fences but has impressed in his two victories to date and has a couple of entries at The Festival - he can defy top weight.
