Verdict

The amateurs handicap at Cheltenham DEFUTURE IS BRIGHT shaped well in a month ago looks pretty strong form and unexposed as a stayer, he could be the answer to this tricky puzzle. Silva Eclipse showed enough on reappearance to make him of firm interest, with Amateur completing the shortlist on return to action.
