Verdict

A contest which has been won by some above-average types in the past, it could be the same again and preference is for COCONUT SPLASH. His four-length win represents the best form in point-to-points in the field and he seemingly just got outstayed over an intermediate trip last time. The drop back in trip at this stage could be the making of him. King Roland looks set to be the main danger and brings a 100% record into the race, the wind surgery too could improve him leaps and bounds. While Ask For Glory can't be discounted but looks a type to excel over fences and Coupdebol could be a shrewd recruit from across the English Channel.
  1. Coconut Splash
  2. King Roland
  3. Ask For Glory
