Verdict

The Bosses Nephew had an entry yesterday at Wincanton and didn't show much at Lingfield earlier this month but Swansbrook has to go on the short-list having won a point-to-point at Black Forest Lodge on the same day Gershwinner unseated his rider on the Flat when leading a different contest. KHACHATURIAN hasn't raced since winning at Llanvapley last April but has always had ability and, with a competent amateur on board, is taken to make a winning reappearance as Cave Hill was still beaten more than 30 lengths when third at Ffos Las. Benedictus' jumping again let him down at Sandown last time and he will always be a risky proposition over regulation fences.
