Verdict

The Alan King-trained TIMOTEO appeared to be a fast improving novice last term and can confirm expectations by winning for a third time over the larger obstacles. In a wide open contest, top weight, Kilfilum Cross is better than his last effort at Ayr in April suggests while C&D winner Western Miller has had a solid and consistent early summer jumping campaign. The Dan Skelton yard boast a record of five winners from 23 runners at this track in the last three years around October/November and their representative, Bennys King is capable of a bold bid if ready to roll following a 309 day lay-off.
  1. Timoteo
