Verdict
FINANCIAL OUTCOME impressed when winning his penultimate start and he can register his second victory of the year by taking this competitive looking novices' handicap chase. The selection is making his first appearance since wind surgery and with the forecast underfoot conditions to suit he can take this ahead of bottom weight Pres who ran well when placed at Plumpton on his most recent outing. Third place can go to Nativegetaway who is dropping in trip following a break.
