Verdict

KINGS ECLIPSE provided his trainer with an overdue winner when scoring over C&D in November on his first chase start. He jumped nicely and did the job well on that occasion, while the form has worked out very nicely with three of those rivals winning subsequently. He should progress from that and looks capable of winning more races at this level. Recent Ludlow scorer Hedgeinator seems sure to test his resolve, he's in good heart and goes unpunished for that win in a conditional jockeys' contest, while James Bowen can now claim a useful 5lb. Smuggler's Stash is weighted to have a chance while Mahler Lad returns from a break and would be in contention if repeating the form of his C&D success in April.
