Verdict

Refusal was third over 2m here last time but didn't appear to stay this trip at Huntingdon earlier. Avenging Ace has been a big disappointment and Lajidaal looks a hard ride while Great's Autrechene is probably best watched after a lengthy absence but Ballyman is almost guaranteed to run his race again, though has never won away from Plumpton. BLACKWELL SYNERGY is almost certainly better than he's shown so far over fences and won off a 10lb higher mark over hurdles in Ireland. This won't take much winning so Jonjo O'Neill's seven-year-old gets a tentative vote as Quinte Du Chatelet has never been one to trust and Jasperito may need more time.
