Verdict

If REMASTERED is none the worse for his Labrokes Trophy tumble then he's fancied to provide David Pipe with a third win in this since 2014, as he went through that Newbury race like one ahead of his mark. Buzz de Turcoing lacks experience for a race like this but he's a lightly-raced sort who surely has more to come and is feared most. Shanty Alley is one who could go well at bigger odds.
