Verdict

A competitve handicap in which the upwardly-mobile ARRIVEDERCI is fancied to gain his biggest win yet having found only the unexposed Craigneiche too good over C&D last month. Shannon Bridge is feared most on the back of his stylish Wetherby success, although both Kateson and Malaya can boast good course form and need considering, while the lightly-raced Gladiateur Allen could have a say too.
