Verdict

TRAFFIC FLUIDE looked sure to appreciate 3m when rallying to success at Cheltenham at the end of last season and sure enough he made a good start over the distance behind a horse who had fallen to a very attractive mark last month so he gets the nod to go one better here. Go Conquer won this a year ago and although in different hands now he is respected again with only 5lb more to saddle. Kings Lad ended last and started this season in fine form and looks sure to go well once again.
