Verdict

With four previous winners in the line-up, this looks a decent novice event and the form should stand up to scrutiny. Benheir was probably out of his depth in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham and should find this more to his liking but Twirling Magnet's second to Medinas at Hereford hasn't worked out and it took Red Rocco six runs to get off the mark. Destroyer Deployed is heading in the right direction, however, and will be suited by the step up to 3m but we'll give another chance to CURTAIN RAZER, who hasn't quite matched the promise of his second to the useful Gullinbursti at Exeter in two subsequent starts but still has time on his side and gets 6lb from his likely market rivals.
