Verdict

FACT OF THE MATTER has taken well to this game, winning three of five starts. He returned last month at Cheltenham and showed he's still going the right way, with another hike to contend with, he can keep going. Last year's winner Al Co has been out for since, though could bounce back with blinkers appearing now while Southfield Vic is a massive danger to all on his excellent chasing record thus far despite a 9lb penalty for his recent Newton Abbot romp. Minellacelebration has shown a game attitude and can get involved once again at the business end.
