Verdict

CURRAIGFLEMENS was successful at this meeting in 2016 and can take this grassroots event this time around. The selection was successful in a competitive five runner contest on his penultimate outing and ran well for a long way in a much better race than this at Cheltenham last time. Second place can go the way of Mountain Cliche who drops in trip here having won at Exeter last time out while Brunswick Gold can take third on his return to regulation fences.
