Verdict

The considerable experience of four-year-old ROSE SEA HAS is an obvious plus and the fact that his owners who have a wealth of riches in the division pitched him in at the deep end first time up suggested he is held in high regard and he can use his allowance to good effect to land this. The obvious threat is Precious Cargo for Nicky Henderson, he looked a useful prospect when winning his hurdles debut at Kempton. Jimmy The Digger is a potentially very useful sort based on his bumper win and he should be watched quite keenly for the future.
  1. Rose Sea Has
