Verdict

SARASOTA STAR has made a smashing start over fences, his jumping again looking a real asset as he doubled his career tally at Chepstow in November. Runner-up both starts since, he gets the nod to put up another bold bid from the front. Nero Rock ran well on debut for Jennie Candlish and holds claims with a repeat. Cedar Hill completes the shortlist.
