Verdict

A cracking renewal with the vote in favour of SOJOURN. A low-mileage 8-y-o he was impressive when scoring on return at Carlisle and highlighted further success is in the offing from his inflated mark when second in the Tommy Whittle next time. A bold jumper, he's fancied to come out on top, with Classic Chase winner Notachance, Enqarde and Welsh National second The Two Amigos heading the dangers.
