Verdict

BETTER TIMES AHEAD left the impression there was a fair bit more in the tank when scoring in a big field at Naas last month so he may be able to cope with a 10 lb rise. The same owner's Celestial Horizon pieced it all together over hurdles last time and is likely capable of better again now handicapping so he's feared most. Vadaly and Only Sky complete the shortlist.
