Verdict

A case can be made for a few here but this could be the day Sam England's free-going PALIXANDRE finally comes good over fences now he drops back to the minimum trip having also tumbled in the weights. Motaraabet is another who could easily take a step forward on only his second chase start, with Musselburgh-scorer Shallow Run weighted to be on the premises too.

  1. PALIXANDRE (FR)
  2. MOTARAABET
  3. SHALLOW RUN (IRE)
