Verdict

There was plenty to like about SAMMY BILL's debut over fences at Kempton last month and while this is a step up in grade, there could still be plenty of improvement to come from the six-year-old. Rebel Royal is another last time out winner who has a rise in the weights to cope with but he's another who looks well suited to the chasing game. Amoola Gold has to be the main danger after his encouraging effort at Newbury last time out.
  1. Sammy Bill
  2. Amoola Gold
  3. Rebel Royal
