Verdict

IBERIO made a successful handicap debut over C&D last time and was value for extra given the mistake he made 2 out. The five-year-old can progress again to follow up, especially if brushing up his jumping. Duneomeno also made a winning handicap debut (over fences) on his latest start and is respected for in-form Christian Williams, while Novus Aditus is unpenalised for his C&D victory 9 days ago.

  1. IBERIO (GER)
  2. DUNEOMENO (FR)
  3. NOVUS ADITUS (IRE)
