Verdict

This looks a bit of a match-race on paper between CHRISTMAS IN APRIL and Manofthemountain. The former gets the nod having run so well in a similar slog at Chepstow latest; cheekpieces could be a real boost to this sometimes quirky individual. The latter lost his unbeaten record over fences when unseating latest but he is still feared despite a 6lb rise for his Southwell success the time before. Tea Time On Mars outran 50/1 odds for a long way at Chepstow and that combined with him winning his final start over hurdles suggest a horse on the up.
