Verdict

With little in the way of contested pace here Mr Satco is likely to get his preferred solo up front although he does have to prove that he can put another good run together. Guerrilla Tactics needs to return to his summer form after disappointing when last seen but with this quick surface in his favour that isn’t ruled out. Clondaw Rigger is at this level a progressive sort who won by 7L last time and looks to have some more evolution in him although he has to prove himself on this quicker surface. ASKING QUESTIONS was asked a stiff one last time at Cheltenham and he was far from disgraced, with Harry Skelton reunited with him and off a mark that doesn’t look harsh.
