Verdict

OBEY THE RULES took well to fences last season, winning a pair of handicaps, and he can make a successful start to the current campaign. The 7-y-o ran below par at Fakenham last time but that was after only 8 days off, so he can bounce back after a break. Captain Cobajay is back down to his last winning mark and feared most, ahead of Cawthorne who is dropping in grade on his return.
